“Bad Display” Finding Beauty in the Broken, is a curated collection of found-art photo reproductions by amateur photographer and computer technician Alexander (Lex) Scarrone. One normal day at work he encountered a particularly interesting cracked monitor while sorting through broken equipment, and decided to document the shattered screens that he came across. Due to poor photography equipment these representations had to go through a secondary process, which gives them their distinct style and appearance. Over the years that series of photos has grown to include almost 400 images. This exhibition at the Winchester Wall Gallery represents a small portion of that collection.
“As abstract pictures they show incredible depth and nuance, ranging from landscapes and skylines, to the odd nebula. Is it a trip to another world, or just a windswept field? Though as real world objects the screens were discarded, here they have found a second life as abstract art. I hope that this collection helps expand the way we view the world and the everyday objects in our lives; to find the beauty in all things.” Lex explained, when asked how and why he created his photographs.
The exhibit and artist reception are free and open to the public.
