Google Map 1

"Google Map 1" 3x24x36" acrylic on panel 2007-2008 Aron Namenwirth

View of Mccarren Park Williamsburg, the first Sculpture in a while. The re materialization of a google map blow-up. In a sense this gives the bitmap/pixels physical form in the real world.
I walk my dog Colin at least once every day here so it is an intimate realization of actual space. Also, included in the map is artMovingProjects and VertexList the blow-up destroys the specificity of the literal. As a sculpture this piece sits on the floor changing the bitmap field from the vertical plane to a horizontal one. While the earlier paintings dealt with political portraiture this work deals with a personal landscape.
