Barcode Jesus in a Material World

I was in LA - and this is how it spoke to me.

When I first created what I was later to call a 'cinemontage' which lies at the feet of 'the Christ', I could not obtain a camera with enough resolution which was sufficient to the task of capturing Los Angeles at night - so I assembled a set of images that could provide that resolution when shrunk down from full frame. Years before I'd set myself to task to reveal a sight we'd all seen before in a refreshed way and years later this particular landscape drew this response. As for the Christ figure, perhaps one of the most ubiquitous and iconic representations of human suffering and redemption of recent era - visioned by Dali in this way - he is now textured with the special sign of late capitalism.
