Digital Color Checker

A single image interpreted 140 times and based on Stephen Shore's color photograph, "Beverly Boulevard and La Brea Avenue, Los Angeles, California, June 21, 1975." I visited the intersection in Los Angeles in January 2011 and used a digital color checker to interrupt the scene. 

8.5"x11" prints were made after "correcting" for white balance using each of the checker's colored tiles. The series is arranged as a grid corresponding to the format of the object, echoing the built environment surrounding the intersection and providing a formal encounter with the discrete malleability of contemporary digital color.
