Couple of weeks ago DotDotDot was in Kristiansand, Norway, painting new large mural for KRS Gadekunstlaug. The fresh piece titled “Analogram” is a great example of using unusual structure to create almost sculptural piece of public art.
Working on a large curved wall, the Norwegian artist saw an opportunity to use it’s peculiar shape and form to accent the image, so he painted this effective piece depicting an analog film frame with hand gesture for excellence. The image is artist’s commentary on the ways that social media keeps putting the pressure on creative work. Though powerful and effective tool in general, DotDotDot believes it shifted the focus from quality to quantity, with speed of producing becoming an important parameter. Mixing the vintage technology of analog film with universal sign of approval or excellence (instead of popular “like” symbol), “Analogram” is sort of a tribute to the “good ol days”, which is further underlined by golden background.
