Resolution #0: The Pixel
RESOLUTION is a new print magazine that tackles images in relation to their online circulation.
From a multiverse of images, RESOLUTION magazine persistently engages with one guiding question: how do digital images format reality? In order to examine digital images in relation to their online presence, RESOLUTION wagers an implausible attempt to trap them in printed form. The magazine acts as a dissecting table for analyzing digital images cut loose from big and small screens, taken out of their “native” circulation.
RESOLUTION explores contemporary visual economies through interviews, historical texts, recent research, artistic propositions and artists’ editions.
This issue of RESOLUTION looks at the most elementary building block of a digital image. It is nerdy, utterly unsexy, but nevertheless has remained enigmatic. This issue looks at pixel from a technical, ethical, artistic, and and economic viewpoint.
