Sean Raspet: Mug


Digitally printed mug, styrofoam
3 3/4 x 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches / 9.5 x 8.3 x 11.4 cm



The mugs were produced on the occasion of Raspet’s solo show, “Digital Infinity” in 2013. Each mug is printed with a unique image. The images are sourced from an archive of Raspet’s own analog photographs taken in a Burger King restaurant in San Francisco. Using these images like a stock photography bank, he began a process of fragmenting and recombining the digitized negatives into new compositions.
