Jason Salavon: Recent Work

Salavon’s work employs self-scripted computer programs to process and reconfigure data gleaned from an all-encompassing cultural panorama. The resulting works range from transubstantiations of intangible statistics into visual abstractions, to literal depictions of the homogenizing effect of an inundation of images. By not committing to any particular source, Salavon’s work serves to highlight the larger implications of how information is produced and processed rather than critiquing any given subject matter. Although Salavon’s reordering of information is technically entirely objective, the works produced are anything but neutral. Simply through reformatting, Salavon prompts the viewer to consider a multitude of questions. Although the answers may remain beyond our reach, we cannot help but feel that – through the act of questioning alone – we are better equipped to tackle a culture consumed by an excess of unedited information.

Poised between contemporary mass culture and the history of art, and between painterly expressionism and the raw data of digital source material and computer code, Salavon’s work is a significant achievement.”  – Joe Hill
