2009 | UN Copenhagen Climate Change conference, has released an advertising campaign featuring spliced portraits collated by photographer John Clang. Print advertisements and a stop motion short film convey the message: “6.8 billion people. One Voice."
Not sure who the artist is but I really admire the use of tape to put up art, it subverts the power frame and such like, brings the art back down, negating a sense pretention that can sometimes accompany an art work. Also The use of 'barbie' pink to hide aspects is similar to what i have been doing recently. Although would it be more powerful with just one image, does things hide whilst in a grid form?
“Impermanence” is a series of portraits by Korean photographer and microbiologist Seung-Hwan Oh who drowns his films camera before using them, into a cultivation of fungus mushrooms. The bacterias devour the film for an abstract and destroyed result. A beautiful way to mistreat a film and to rebel against the perfect and idealized pictures we see everywhere nowadays.
