Digital artist Jon Rafman is best known for his work around Google Street View, which he approaches as a repository of images that bring to the fore the relationship between technology and human experience. Concerned with the tension between the camera’s indifference and the human search for meaning, he has said, “While celebrating and critiquing modern experience, the technological tools themselves show how they can estrange us from ourselves.”
For his ongoing project, Brand New Paint Job, Rafman appropriates elements from modernist paintings—by Joan Miró, Yves Klein, and Jackson Pollock, among others—using them as textures that he applies to digital renderings of 3D models, including busts, interior spaces, cars, and pieces of furniture.
