Penelope Umbrico cropped the screens from hundreds of images of computers and TVs she found for sale on websites such as eBay, Craigslist and Alibaba between 2008 and 2016. Out of Order : Bad Display gives a second lease on life to these worn, obsolete and sold for parts objects.
The book reproduces these ephemeral images of screens from the internet in a final presentation. Here Umbrico intervenes during the printing process by manually over-inking the press. Undermining of the precision of the press and the slick-ness of the screen she calls attention to the material messiness of both. The intervention expresses the particularity of these objects judged useless and renders each copy unique.
