Uwe Wittwer’s work reflects on the nature and meaning of images and his source material is carefully chosen from digital representations— images of images — researched in the depths of the internet. Throughout his work, Wittwer is concerned with ideas of authenticity and truth, multiple refractions of reality, and the role of the artist as archivist and voyeur.
