Mona Lisa Without a Mustache

Visual interpretation/translation of Harold Rosenberg's 1976 essay "the Mona Lisa Without a Mustache, Art in the Media Age," compiled from google image searching each individual word. This essay follows the descent of fine art into popular culture and its consequent transformation/deformation, as a direct result of the ease of mechanical reproduction. This work intends to "illustrate" Rosenberg's thoughts on mass production and popular culture by using a contemporary version of the process he is describing.

“Creating a work of art out of a worthless mechanical reproduction. it subjects a media product to an act that reflects the situation of art in our time.” - Harold Rosenberg
