Tulip Variations

Various sizes. Edition 1/1.

One day, while making inkjet prints, I accidentally removed the USB-memory with the Tiff-file being printed. The machine then repeated a single line of pixels until the end of the image. The result was minimalistic and abstract, it instantly intrigued me.

Even though it might be possible in theory, it is highly unlikely to pull out the USB at the exact same time twice. Which means that this method transforms these standard images of flower fields into unique prints.

Biennale Le Latitudini Dell´Arte at Palazzo Ducale in Genova, Italy and Thomassen Gallery in Gothenburg, Sweden.
