Digital Deli By Marco Scozzaro

I am interested in how the cultural superstructure shapes identity and memory and a certain related postmodern displacement. With Digital Deli, I set out to investigate the visual vernacular, passive image consumption, and the inevitable visual pollution of mass communication culture. The work is an exploration of the everyday, to decode the signs of the saturated and disorienting visual landscape (both real and virtual). I creates multilayered photographs that reference and appropriate stylized imagery; I sample cultural artifacts, collect visual fragments and leftovers and assemble them in sculptural compositions. I juxtaposes, deconstructs and re-contextualizes images that are, on first viewing, different but related on a broader level. I use humor and detachment to force connections and raise questions, while not necessarily telling a story
