These images were produced during 1995 and were the result of destroying 20 televisions and using the insides as the starting point for a series of large oil paintings. As a means of cycling through ideas quickly Keane started to make mono prints using an inked sheet of glass and drawing directly onto the back of the paper. The images were then photocopied, reduced in size, re-photocopied, printed and formed into a small book of 20 images. The book has now been scanned, the images compressed into JPG, changed into GIF and put out on the net. You will be looking on your monitor at the life size image but only after it has been squeezed and moved around by various mediums and technologies. Once these images had been put on the net, the original book of 20 images was destroyed, leaving behind only these virtual images .
