Jan Ullrich TextPortrait

While searching for Jan’s Tour TT crash, I found this textportrait by German artist Ralph Ueltzhoeffer. The portraits are assembled from a photo, wikipedia, and mashed together:

Textportrait as visual display is inseparably assembled out of text (internet) and photos and is therewith bound to a readable portrait. The typeface white on black relates to the DOS input mode (visually).


Also see Barack Obama’s textportrait from a current exhibition.

Art, at times, takes a pause to think about. The word drugs appears twice in Jan’s textportrait.
