Archimboldo & Ball Nogues : pieces and a whole

February 24, 2011 at 10:04 am | Posted in research | Leave a comment

Burcum posted these to her audio visual system blog and they reminded me of the Mona Lisa.

And fruit portraits. 16th c. artist Giuseppe Archimboldo did a series of fruit portraits representing each of the 4 seasons: winter, spring, summer, and autumn. ( hah I just posted this and when I checked the post I realized the figures were looking at each other! cool… )

Also, this firm Ball Nogues does installations based on SMALL MODULAR PIECES coming together to create a WHOLE. They work with light through transparency and shape, making really dynamic installations that change throughout the day and interact with the spaces they are installed in.
