Richard Prince‘s ‘Untitled (Cowboy)’ is a copy (the photograph) of a copy (the advertisement) of a myth (the cowboy). My project adds another iteration to this system.

I used Google Image Search to collect every image of Richard Prince’s ‘Untitled (Cowboy)’ I could find online and subsequently had them printed using Kodak’s online printing service on standard 4×6 glossy photo paper.

The images are displayed in acrylic box frames coupled together with small binder clips.

This installation view shows 25 out of 52 photos, each unique due to different pixel sizes and various compression settings of the downloaded images.
