Oliver Laric


Oliver Laric’s ongoing Versions (2009–) reflects the conditions of our digital world: how original and copy, event and document, are collapsed in a flattened information space where everything is a click away from everything else. Laric’s sculptural and online-based practice addresses how the ontology of the digital affords new episemic and affective patterns of experience and understanding. Versions evinces how images and objects are continually modified to represent something new, from Roman copies of Greek sculptures, to doctored and augmented images, remixes, and GIFs.
