“Alan Belcher has produced new work for this exhibition, a ceramic multiple edition. Known for his pioneering of the “photo-object_ genre (artworks which fused the disciplines of photography and sculpture); he has furthered that exploration with a multiple series of what can be seen as perhaps the ultimate “photo-object”. Belcher has taken the ephemeral nature of the universal jpeg, and solidified its default icon into a standard image surrogate. The edition entitled “______.jpg” was fabricated in China, is a series of 125 pieces each signed and dated.” 25 Years of Talent at Marianne Boesky Gallery, curated by Michelle Grabner May 2 - Jun 16, 2012.

EDIT: Here’s Alan Belcher’s profile at Saatchi Online.

I kinda want one of these. And I never would have been curious about this question until now, but: who took this photo originally, and who now owns the rights to it? (I assume Apple) But until it was made into an object like this, I never even thought twice about the image itself.

Very interesting.
