Rafaël Rozendaal - Popular Screen Sizes
For the 6th exhibition in the programme, The Green Room presents a single work by Rafaël Rozendaal (NL, 1980).
Rafaël is interested in how mirrors retain both metaphorical and literal meanings for reflection as well as pertain a transience and reliance upon light and movement.
Popular Screen Sizes (60”, 55”, 46”, 40”, 32”, 27”, 24”, 21”, 17”, 15”, 13”, 10”, 7”, 3.5”) by Rafaël Rozendaal operates as a reflection on contemporary lifestyles and the extent to which these involve our interface with screens, as well as a mirror to the immediate environment and the viewer.
Rafaël is interested in “the fine line between something and nothing” claiming “Art freezes things, so you can pause and stare and wonder. To freeze things, simplicity is key, the simpler the better, the more isolated the more focus.”
Juxtaposing this isolated focus is the stream of content which enables access to a formed ‘popularity’ which shapes, frames or helps define ‘focus’.
Rafaël Rozendaal’s visually compelling websites teeter between an instinctive and playful interaction attracting over 30 million visits per year. Rafaël “lives everywhere” and elements of this transient lifestyle are present in the actualisation of his works.
