Evan Roth is a genius artist who takes hacking and art and combines it into one. Much like Cory Arcangel, Roth takes technology and puts it to unconventional uses. For example he takes photographs and turns them into sculptures made out of photographs. Roth’s pieces take on “the relationship of misuse and empowerment and the effect that philosophies from hacker communities can have when applied to digital and non-digital systems.”
I was awestruck by the beauty of his kite pieces. The way the picture looks on the kite is just gorgeous. I also greatly enjoyed his pieces from the “No Original Research.” The pictures that he created digitally are absolutely mesmerizing. His pieces were a lot of fun to look at and it seems like he makes it fun to create them. That’s important because art and even life would just suck without some fun in it.
