Recovered VII by Fabienne Hess

Friday, 25 May 2012

Recovered VII is a collection of 13,228 discarded images, found on a public computer and printed onto silk by designer Fabienne Hess using Image Plot visualisation software.

The work explores discarded and forgotten images in our technology-obsessed society: what happens to these endless images which are uploaded, saved, downloaded, and eventually overwritten?

The energetic rhythm and colour choices also tie in with the dynamic aesthetic of WGSN-homebuildlife’s macro trend, Hacktivate.
