Each drawing is named after the projector used – Pradolux, Rollei, Pradovit – becoming melancholy self-portraits of an obsolete technology. The use of slide projectors as a way of reproducing a found image in a flattened and disinterested way has its roots in Roy Lichtenstein’s pop art, and is a trope of post-pop painting, but Mosettig’s work is interested not in the image itself but its means of reproduction: the way in which an image comes to life.
