    Archival ink jet print on Museo Silver Rag paper 
    44 x 29 inches 
    Editioned series of 20 (each uniquely titled) 


    Furthering Beshty's interest in the ruptures created by the photographic artifact, this series takes a single appropriated image and corrupts it repeatedly, generating intensely colorful and increasingly abstract images. The result is 20 unique prints sequentially generated from the original image.
