Re: SV: <nettime> Landscape Painting of the Information Age

In the summer of 2004 the New York-based artist Laura Kurgan exhibited 
four large prints based on data collected by commercial earth-observation 
satellites, at the Whitney Museum at Altria in New York City. She called 
the work "Monochrome Landscapes." The New Yorker magazine reviewer wrote 
(issue of 5 July 2004): "Laura Kurgan's digital satellite photographs of 
landscapes reduced to monochrome fields provide a glimpse of how 
transporting both visually and conceptually art based on digits can be."
