Project with Alex Olivier.
Our first class project we were asked to go to the Museum of Modern Art, select a picture from the 18th or 19 century of what we thought as pristine. These are our findings and resulting project.
In meandering through the galleries we came up with a lot of fun approaches to this idea of pristine. It seems a classical definition is belonging to nature. An idyllic picturesque moment in time where man-made structures or man-made disruptions are not evident. To emphasis this point of human interruption we first made a couple of animated gifs of Alex disrupting my view of “pristineness.”
