Jonathan Morse created six 24"  x 36" Moab Juniper Baryta Rag prints, up now at Currents New Media 2017, a month-long international festival of new media in Santa Fe, New Mexico June 9-25, 2017.

The prints depict Earth-like spheres that appear to be unraveling or recombining, worlds composed of various designs and colors and overlaying a moiré background pattern. Morse is showing six of a series of eight prints. “They’re about how we create our own art worlds within and without,” he said. In a statement about the work, he talks about how the digital age has made us all editors and directors of our own lives, curating the version of ourselves we present to others through our online profiles. “To understand today’s world requires knowledge of editing techniques that do not remain static and without which we may not know what is going on around us outside our analog selves,” he writes. “Our re-mastered digital constructions now serve as objective correlatives of our inner experience. To repurpose the oft-spoken moviemaking term, we now can fix our lives in post.”
