joe winter

joe winter's 'xerox astronomy and the nebulous object-image archive' is"an installation in two parts: 1) a central kinetic sculpture and 2) the presentation of the image archive the sculpture produces. the first part places an office photocopier at the center of a mechanical model of the universe. in this model, a group of desklamp-esque arms orbit robotically, maneuvering light sources above the bed of the copier, the system's observation and recording device. by continually documenting, through photocopies, the paths of the orbiting objects, the copier produces images suggestive both of various forms of scientific vision (astrophotography, sonography, etc) and paranormal/hoax photography." see more here.
