Jon Rafman





Jon Rafman (born 1981, Quebec, Canada) is a Montreal, Canada based contemporary artist and filmmaker perhaps best known for exhibiting found images from Google Street View 9-Eyes. Rafman is represented by Zach Feuer Gallery in New York and SEVENTEEN in London. Rafman was educated at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and McGill University and has been exhibited at New Museum (2010), The Saatchi Gallery (2012), Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome (2010), Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (2012), and Palais de Tokyo (2012).

Annals of Time Lost (キレovv乇尺丂 ノ刀 ム gレム丂丂 √ム丂乇) is a large-scale, printable diptych in the form of a tiff file. Fashioning himself as a digital archivist, Rafman uses centuries-old paintings as his starting point, and then imposes found digital imagery onto the work. This diptych is intended to be printed on architectural blueprint paper.
