Photograph by Bernard Schardt, 1943.
A standard blinking cursor is added to Bernard Schardt's photograph of Jackson Pollock. The artist hesitates in front of the large blank canvas that will become Peggy Guggenheim's commission, Mural (1943). Pollock would delay until the night before his deadline to begin painting what would become his first large-scale abstraction. Enacting Pollock's pause, the player is immobilized without a keyboard or console.
Curs(e)ored Pollock is shown here inverted based on the architecture of the J. Wayne Reitz Union gallery. To see the original, non-inverted work please go to http://patrick-lemieux.com/projects/curs(e)or.
