PATRICK LICHTY | BERLIN
EXPANDED.ART is delighted to present PIXEL GRAIN, Patrick Lichty’s first solo exhibition, at the Showroom in Berlin. On view are a selection of his low-fi photographs taken with a wristwatch camera. In the post-digital age, we have cameras and microphones all around us, but how much do we see with our own eyes versus our digital eyes?
In the early 2000s, long before the iPhone, Patrick Lichty documented the world secretly with a low-resolution wristwatch camera, a Casio WQV-1. The photographs revealed a candid, often uncanny landscape of pixelated reality. Does the digital eye see more clearly than our own? Do these pixels remind us of film grain?
Lichty explores reality in the early digital age, from Ground Zero to eccentric oil wells decorated like butterflies.
