Scenarios (2002–06)

Using the same transfer process that Rauschenberg employed since 1992, the Scenarios were made by transferring digital color images—made on an inkjet printer—onto two polylaminate panels. Imagery is often arranged in a gridlike format with less overlap than in preceding works resulting in swathes of negative space. As Rauschenberg’s right hand was partially paralyzed at the time, studio assistants took photographs, which Rauschenberg then selected and placed on the picture surface. He instructed his assistants to transfer the images in a straightforward, uninflected manner.
