Michael Itkoff: CtrlAltDel
CtrlAltDel takes as its subject our contemporary world of digital information. By examining the slippage between analogue and digital technology Michael Itkoff's work seeks to create confrontations with the digital environment through a combination of appropriated photographs, stop motion video loops and manually typed works on paper. "Technologically mediated existence has led to an increasingly tenuous relationship to the physical world" he states "within the space between messy materiality and binary data a true record of our selves exist."
Michael Itkoff is an artist and Cofounder of Daylight Books + Daylight Digital as well as an Associate Professor at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. He has spent time at the Annie Leibowitz Studio, Aperture Foundation, and Rizzoli International Publications. A monograph, 'Street Portraits', was published by Charta Editions in 2009. Michael received his BA from Sarah Lawrence College and his MFA from ICP/Bard College.
