Pam et Jenny

Pam et Jenny is French for Pam and Jenny. That's all the French I know. They list themselves as designers, but one of their series caught my eye as a real work of art. Their Scam* project looks so freakin' cool. I remember playing with this technique in school, but they've taken it to a whole new level. Dragging copies over a scanner as it scans deconstructs the images and causes an RGB noise that plays really well off the grainy black and white images. Most of their source material are images from text books of old paintings, but they also toss in some 60s looking images of people dressed like Warhol and what looks like Lou Reed, though they are somewhat abstracted. The format is cool too, long and narrow so they hang to the floor and roll out into the path of the viewer.

Check them out here.
