About three weeks ago, we shared with you the fascinating discovery of some of Andy Warhol's digital artworks created with an Amiga computer and saved on floppy disks. Now, through this short documentary, we get to find out how the entire project came to be as well as see bits of the recovery process itself.
“The Invisible Photograph: Part II (Trapped)” is actually the Carnegie Museum of Art’s follow-up to “The Invisible Photograph: Part I (Underground)” under its ongoing _Invisible Photograph_ series. In “Trapped,” we learn how the project started and see parts of the actual recovery process straight from artist Cory Arcangel, the Warhol project’s initiator, as well as from the other key personalities involved in it from The Andy Warhol Museum and the Carnegie Mellon University’s Computer Club. In between these are video clips of the Amiga 1000’s launch at the Lincoln Center in 1985, in which Warhol himself used the computer to create a digital color portrait of Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry. Images of the recovered artwork were also showcased towards the end of the close to 19 minute-long documentary.
Berenice Abbott documented the sped-up pulse, concrete towers, and busy crowds of New York. These black and white images, as well as her pioneering work in science photography, appear in a thicker reissue of a classic Aperture book.
