Adrian Sauer

Sauer deconstructs the perfection of digital photography with posters bearing black and white squares measuring 1.5 x1.5 mm. These pose a problem for the sensors of digital cameras, because they function using a checkerboard grid of 50% green, 25% red and 25% blue pixel points to generate various color tones. These two discrete grids clash in Sauer’s work: at the moment the shutter is released, the stringent black and white results in colorful smears indicative of the difference between the analogue reliance on light and the digital reliance on calculation.
