Ofri Cnaani: ⌘D (Command+Duplicate)
‘⌘D (Command+Duplicate)’ is a participatory performance where artist Ofri Cnaani will be creating personalized one-of-a-kind Xerox pieces, made from visitors’ belongings and collected ephemera, using the artist’s own ad-hoc photocopying and projection station. For Aurora, Cnaani is building a special collection of small items, contributed by various members of the Dallas community: students, senior citizens, as well as downtown residents and employees.
The visitors are invited to pick an item from their personal belongings and two others from Cnaani’s collection to be included in a customized image created especially by the artist for them. A copier will record the final image projected on the wall, producing a paradoxical, unique copy on paper that will be signed by the artist and given to each participant.
