Barcode Jesus in a Material World

While in Los Angeles, Terry Flaxton created what he was later to call a 'cinemontage' which lies at the feet of 'the Christ'. He could not obtain a camera with resolution sufficient for the task of capturing Los Angeles at night - his solution was to assemble a set of images that could provide that resolution when shrunk down from full frame. Years before, he had set himself the task of revealing sights seen time and again in a refreshed way; years later this particular landscape inspired him to respond with creativity and technique. The Christ figure, perhaps one of the most ubiquitous and iconic representations of human suffering and redemption of recent era, is now textured with the special sign of late capitalism.

"The ubiquitous presence of the divine wrestles with the contemporary problem of 'specialness' in relation to the all-pervasive" - After Dali
