this is fun.

By Olafur Eliasson, this breathtaking installation at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art of a river running through the museum is astounding. It is such a realistic, natural landscape the museum could have been dropped on top of the river itself for how pristine it looks. This site-specific installation is a focus on experience, and how the viewer senses their surroundings. 

daniellefoushee  I am sure Olafur Eliasson is already on your list of artists, but if not you should check him out. The waterfalls on the Hudson River are particularly engaging.  therhumboogie:

This is a test for assigned fun of an animated gif using some of the same ideas i have been working with in still form. I am calling it “Wind Envy.”

This work got me thinking about the moments before and after a picture is taken. What compels us to snap the frame at a moment? What is missed in the preservation of a single frame, what is gained?

Over this week I have also been contemplating more deeply the role that youth and aging plays in my work. About the need for us to capture and hold on to our youth. Very rarely are people photographed as much in their old age as they are in their youth. Who is the picture for? 

When we look at an images from our childhood do we replay just the still image in our memory or do we create the moments before and after the frame was snapped?

Thinking about installation….

After talking to my mentor last week a couple of artists came up that are dealing with installation that feel really relevant to my thinking about how to go beyond a picture or video while still having something that is an object (not a full out instal space) 

Today I want to talk about  Michael C. McMillen. These miniatures and full scale installs include video or photo or other scenes within. 

His Artist Statement:

There are many things about this that are speaking to me. Inparticular his desire for the viewer to interact with his work and the hidden secrets and illusions within. 

My first animated gif test for photoshop. Oddly, I feel like AE might actually be easier when it comes to working with multiple layers. but I like the idea of art in this short form gif format. Now to do more complex work testing out this form.

I got some presents in the mail today from @lesleysilvia she knows me so well. Some of my favorite artists. All books I do not own! Thank you so much!

In their series Freizeitfreunde HobbyBuddies, the Swiss photographers Ursula Sprecher (b. 1970) and Andi Cortellini (b. 1965) show group portraits of people who meet regularly due to a shared interest. No matter what they call themselves – interest group, association, club, clique or league – the focus in these groups is always on voluntary commitment and the joy of pursuing a common cause or shared idea. These staged pictures were each taken at a carefully selected location, at a scheduled time, with scenery built and specifically arranged to show a certain number of members of the group. The subjects of the group pictures come from all walks of life, age groups, ethnicities and religions. The pictures betray thorough research and organization: the number of subjects and their clothing, the props, accessories – nothing is left to chance. This approach results in unusual, intriguing and in some cases even perplexing images and compositions. The photo series has been exhibited internationally and published in numerous magazines, such as chrismon, Geo, Tageswoche and NZZ.
