IOANA DRAGOMIR IN COLLABORATION WITH MARY ALLEN STUDIO TOUR AND WATERLOO PUBLIC LIBRARY: “ILLUMINATION,” LOW RESOLUTION PROPHECY
Playing with the multiple meanings of “illumination,” Low Resolution Prophecy is made from sheets of paper each printed in a solid colour to create a pixelated version of a medieval manuscript illumination. The word “illumination” also refers to the moment where things begin to make sense, or a narrative is “illuminated.” On the night of Lumen, computer-generated fortunes and prophesies are projected onto the piece to invoke this third meaning.
