MAX DE ESTEBAN

BINARY CODE

2015

Max de Esteban continues his examination of our world as mediated by and through technology, through creating photographic imagery that utilizes the traditions of appropriation and remix. As with his earlier bodies of work, the artist dispenses with the linear perspective inherent in Western art, as a key device in his examination of how technology is a determining factor in artistic expression, in human relationships, and in our mediation of the world. 

"Binary Code, attempts to give visual expression to a world where databases and algorithms determine the ultimate reality, including nature. This is essentially the end of the order of nature as we know it".—states Max de Esteban.

The Binary Code series are a colorful concoction of collages that excite our imagination and send the viewer on a trajectory of multiple narratives.
