ABOUT THE ARTWORK
The .TUMBLR project utilizes CMYK color separation screenprinting to capture static moments from the ever-streaming blogosphere. This analogue reposting gives physical form to combinations of images that previously only existed in the digital world. For each .TUMBLR work, Wellisz pulls images from a single blog, primarily those of teenagers who have taken their images from other digital sources—the images in his work has been, and will continue to be, reused, reblogged, and recycled thousands of times. In diffusing image streams, this work alludes to the loss of power of digital imagery due to its over saturation/exposure; while, the subject matter addresses how infinite digital access has contributed to a loss of innocence for youth and instead the embrace of the grotesque.
