The Berlin Gemäldegalerie invited American artist Michael Joaquin Grey to chooseone of the well-known Renaissance portraits in the museum's collection and producea contemporary artistic reaction to the work. Grey chose Sandro Botticelli's paintingSimonetta Vespucci (circa 1475).The portrait is the basis for the computer-generated work Between Simonetta, whichslowly but continuously alters the portrait by means of an algorithmic program, calculatingever-new combinations. Questions arising from this work - of likeness and ideal,of authenticity, temporality and the transformation of an image - lie at the centre ofthe catalogue. The artist at once thematizes the paradigms of human perception andexplores the genesis of the face as a constructive, self-reflexive process.
