A J Bocchino

Page 1 | Biography

I collect headlines from the New York Times and corporate logos from the internet and use them as data for systems that generate complex drawings. I spend thousands of hours photocopying microfilm and downloading from the internet in order to reproduce the exact font and size of the headlines and logos. Over the past three years I have accumulated a huge mass of these photocopies and logos which I then sort, organize, catalogue, enter into the computer, and color-code. This process is ongoing and more information is continuously added to each project.

My projects are driven by an analysis of the mass media as well as the processes of accumulation, archiving, and record keeping. These projects are monumental works that speak to: a common history, memory, institutional power structures, and the passage of time.
