Keys Part 2

Daniel Bejar's The Visual Topography of a Generation Gap (#2 Brooklyn, NY), 2006

From the website: "A copy was made from my original apartment key, then a copy was made from that copy. This process was repeated until the original keys information was
destroyed, resulting in the topography of a generation."

One copy of Braydee's key that also didn't work due to information lost in the reproduction process.

This reminds me of Mary Lucier's Shigeko, 1970-72, back when xerography was a new art form.


  1. This (and especially the Lucier/xerography one) makes me think (musically) of William Basinski's "Disintegration Loops." Info on that project here:

  2. Oh wow! Thanks Drew. Have you heard Alvin Lucier's "Sitting in a Room"?
