Photography | Video Art
Museum Day by Yao Ruilin is a photography and video series that explores the relationship between art and the threat of digitalization. Art that is captured, pixelized, converted to represent reality, is it still art?
Yao makes trips to virtual museums of some of the worlds' most famous art sanctuaries and "photographs" her explorations from the comfort of her own home. Command, shift, 3. A photo is created. She never moved an inch.
Are screenshots the future of photography? Is museum day a day at a museum or just a day looking at colorized pixels of a virtual world?
