For this commission, artist David Hanes remixed 47 out of 500+ images that Art F City staff members took during this year’s Frieze New York. The remixes are made with the same techniques he used to produce his “Aware” series, in which online images of gallery documentation become the source material for digital manipulations. Hanes revises these representations of cultural objects in anonymous spaces using Photoshop. The result are dark and vaguely unsettling photographs of emptied showrooms and bleached-out artwork.
