Artefact Magazine

Usant de la camera comme un outil reproductif qu’il n’a cessé de prendre à contre-pied, il lui substitue malicieusement une anti thèse, poussant l’expérience de son utilisation jusqu’aux limites de la définition. Ce qui conduira ainsi jusqu’à l’effacement même du sujet en tant qu’élément photogénique. Quelles conséquences et quelles bonnes raisons de prendre une image? « Aucune ! Se dit il, Si ce n’est d’enregistrer dans un périmètre mémoriel: un concept, une action, une émotion, une composition, une condition, un sentiment, réel ou fictif. » Se jouant de cette relation ambiguë avec le médium, il malmène le matériau … Autant de raisonnement pour rompre avec ses fondamentaux et briser le genre typologique lié aux contraintes physiques de cet appareillage. « Plus je regarde moins je vois ».

Jahrhunderts. Auf mehreren Etagen befinden sich meist eher düster wirkende, laborähnliche Räume, in denen sich ganze Bibliotheken im Miniaturformat befinden. Marc Giai-Miniet lädt ein zu einer Reise durch fiktive Dachböden, Bibliotheksräume, vorbei an staubigen Ecken und riesig scheinenden Regalen in Keller und Maschinenräumen. Er kreiert Bilder in denen man das Geräusch eines unaufhörlich tropfenden Wasserhahns und hallende Schritte durch kalte, halbdunkle Gänge zu hören meint.

Dan voinea. Charles Sheeler. January 30, 2013 by redtreetimes I find it hard to believe that I haven’t mentioned the work of Charles Sheeler here, outside of a mention of his collaboration with Paul Strand on the film Manhatta, a landmark American art film from 1921.

Charles Sheeler

Sheeler (1883-1965) is one of my favorite artists who as a pioneer in photography and painting in the early decades of the 20th century is often called the father of Modernism. Oddly enough, I am particularly drawn to his industrial imagery which replaces almost all evidence of things natural in completely man-made factoryscapes. This might seem to be the antithesis of my own work, which often omits all evidence of human intervention in my landscapes. Some of his most potent work came from an assignment where Henry Ford hired Sheeler to photograph his factories, wanting him to glorify them in an almost religious manner, as though they were cathedrals for the new age. Christopher Domakis hutong. The 50 greatest matte paintings of all time. The art of the glass shot or matte painting is one which originated very much in the early ‘teens’ of the silent era.

The 50 greatest matte paintings of all time

Pioneer film maker, director, cameraman and visual effects inventor Norman Dawn is generally acknowledged as the father of the painted matte composite, with other visionary film makers such as Ferdinand Pinney Earle, Walter Hall and Walter Percy Day being heralded as making vast contributions to the trick process in the early 1920’s. Boiled down, the matte process is one whereby a limited film set may be extended to whatever, or wherever the director’s imagination dictates with the employment of a matte artist. In it’s most pure form, the artist would set up a large plate of clear glass in front of the motion picture camera upon which he would carefully paint in new scenery - an ornate period ceiling, snow capped mountains, a Gothic castle or even an alien world. 50.
