Project Description: This 17m/ 56ft corridor was transformed into a peeling cross-vaulted ceiling upon which animated art historical characters moved about like living frescoes, interacting with drawn/ painted elements. These art historical giants were also seen in miniature scale, moving around in small holes in the wall on embedded screens embracing a scale shift from the massive to the intimate.

 

Medium: Wood, paper, projections on ceiling, stop-motion animations, collage, acrylic, ink, colored pencils, polymer clay sculptures, dyed plaster, embedded plasma screens in the floor and wall
