revolving poet

Revolving Poet, 2016 (based on Man Ray, The Poet, 1938)

In spring 2016 the
Link Art Center Brescia invited connected artists to choose and remix original dada artworks provided as a collection of ultra high resolution JPEG downloads.

The nearly century-old postcard-sized photograph The Poet by Man Ray (
unedited original goes here) was part of this collection of files and needed only a colorful topping to be identified as the blueprint for the first photographic AR lenses, introduced by snapchat only some months before in late 2015.
