Photos of TVs at the Moment They Turn Off
Artist Stephan Tillmans’ Luminant Point Arrays is a series of photographs of tube TVs at the moment they are switched off.
The television picture breaks down and creates a structure of light. The pictures refuse external reference and broach the issue of the difference between abstraction and concretion in photography. The breakdown of the television picture discribes the breakdown of the reference. The product is self-referential photography.
