A New Global (Digital) Culture

Wednesday, June 15, 2011 · 2 Comments

Martin Grasser and Jiyun Ha (aka 2ppl) are friends from Art Center who co-produced GFS using photocopiers and newspapers from all around the world. What they created was a wealth of new imagery, all appropriated from existing imagery. Their idea is very simple yet also pretty mind-blowing.

The Global from Scratch Project is an installation which attempts to capture the emergence of a new global culture born out of technological advances… (which have) eliminated many of the boundaries that in the past have separated people into unique geographic and nationalistic cultures. As these cultural traditions begin to fade and change, we see a new culture, a global culture, created almost from scratch.


Xerox paintings – the artists’ favorites from GFS.
