Chris Kitze explores the transformation and globalization of culture by digital technology. Investigating urban centers where store windows and monumental advertising images are a worldwide phenomenon and a part of modern mythology, Kitze reveals how the numerical representation of imagery makes it possible for everything and anyone to be everywhere. Although Kitze is fascinated by digital forms, he does not apply the technology to his work. Instead, he allows these objects to reflect and collide with one another, creating an improvisational mise-en-scène replete with unintended meaning and full of ambivalence.
