Uh huh, uh huh... I know
This piece is a portrait of my wife Lotta chatting on the phone.
The final piece is an 8 colour screen print, printed directly onto the screen of an iPhone 4. The black of the illustration is the screen of the phone itself showing through the negative spaces left by the rest of the print. Printed in an edition of just 10.
The phone itself has had the battery removed and been painstakingly cleaned to remove all traces of the previous owner before being hand printed. As each phone that comes to the studio has it's own character, each piece in the edition is unique, pictured here is a black iPhone 4, this edition also includes a white iPhone 4.
The printed iPhone is presented float mounted in a hand built black box frame, it is signed, dated, numbered and titled on the reverse of the frame.
