Interested in technology’s effect on the individual, Agnieszka Kurant (Polish, born 1978) addresses the decline of handwriting and turn to digital modes of communication in her series The End of Signature. To make this work, she collected signatures from the Cleveland Museum of Art’s employees and trustees that she later aggregated into a single inscription using software that she developed with a computer programmer. The latest iteration of her ongoing series, this work represents the many individuals and stakeholders who make up the CMA’s complex structure.
