Along with Berg's penguins, Koons's digitized landscape paintings are inspired by photos of the Titanic's infamous iceberg and drawings from the Franklin Expedition. Says Koons: "I became interested in digital art and digital processes and started thinking about using that as a filter to bring landscape art into the contemporary realm. Although some of this exhibit is tongue-in-cheek, it continues an important dialogue about whether global warming is valid and real."
