Title of Work:

Do You Want to See One Million?”

 

Description:

A photograph consisting of a matrix of one million US $ signs; one thousand across by one thousand down.  The image is so compressed that it cannot be photographed. (read Visual Analysis) Taking a picture of the work, that is a true representation, is impossible. 

It is a photograph that can’t be photographed.

 

The Artist: Roger Molloy
(b. 1975)

'Molloy aka 'Puckish,' works with light and chemical sensitive papers.  With 17 years behind the lens and 7 years in front of the gallery door, a mysterious approach is taken to seeing.  Based on an anomalous character from Shakespeare's, "A Midsummer Night's Dream," Puckish states, "I enjoy creating photographs that cannot be photographed - the non transmissible. The image is the most valuable thing to humanity - without it we would be more animal than human." (view TIME OUT article)
