My first fine art piece. A massive 4ft x 3ft print on shimmery brushed aluminum. Ink is sublimated and the vapor is infused deep into the metal, creating unparalleled quality and durability. With a curing process to guard against scratches and dust, this product is even durable enough to be hung outside in a covered area. Since the ink is actually infused into the metal, it won’t fade or lose its brilliance like you might experience in cheaper prints where the ink is deposited on top of the material. This product is built to last multiple lifetimes. 


About The Art

Anthropos comes from two root words in the ancient greek:  ἀνήρ (anḗrman) and ὤψ (ṓpsface, appearance, look). Literally translated, it means something like “One who looks like a human”. 𐠀𐠰𐠦𐠡𐠩 is how the word was written before the greek alphabet and paper were introduced using the Cypriot syllabary, where the letters would typically be etched into marble or clay. This piece is a reflection on what 𐠀𐠰𐠦𐠡𐠩 means today in the burgeoning era of AI. We’re creating a bifurcation between our digital and physical representations of self – presenting ourselves one way on the internet while living completely different lives in reality. All the while, we are creating algorithms to teach computers and AI who we are – but is what the computer sees truly 𐠀𐠰𐠦𐠡𐠩? The style of the image is an homage to the progression in forms of writing, representing simultaneously how far we have come and how far we have yet to go towards creating our AI descendants.

 

Additional Info

Since the piece is largely covered in shimmery metal, it will take a variety of appearances depending on the lighting of the room it is displayed in. The best lighting configuration I have found for it is a room with lots of ambient sunlight or diffuse angled lighting from the ceiling. A dark room with little lighting will have the piece take a more ominous appearance, where you catch only shimmers and glimpses that follow you as you walk by. I really enjoy how the piece changes in character from day to night.

The product is surprisingly light for being made entirely out of metal (it weighs around 14 lbs/6.5kg) so it can be hung without too much extra effort. The attached mounting rails are roughly 1″ thick, so the metal will float out slightly from the wall, providing depth and fullness to the piece.
