Taken in Napa Valley by Charles O'Rear in 1995, the photography used as Windows XP's default wallpaper is considered as the world's most seen image. Since its release in 2001, it has spawned an incredible number of variations and parodies. Bliss is a lenticular print which mixes a 15 of these images together. Each is representative of its history and of the different types of possible variations. These landscapes, from Minecraft to paintings, are precisely positioned to achieve a maximum of possible concordances. By a sort of physical glitch, viewers never can't really discern all these merged images that reveal the archetype of the photography: according to the movement and viewing angle, they constantly appear and elude our gaze.
