This Is Not A Loop
This is an audio piece derived from Rene Magritte’s famous surreallist painting, ‘The Betrayal of Images’, (Oil on Canvas, 1929). Magritte’s Pipe, that is not a pipe but an image of a pipe, is represented not by an image but by the sound loop digitally generated from that image. The referenced still image is discarded. A crisis of representation persists. ‘This Is Not A Loop’, is derived from an image about representation but is not an image. It denies it’s nature as both image and loop. And begs to be understood.
