    Room Portraits by Menno Aden

    Through challenging camera angles Menno Aden abstracts most familiar actual living environments and public interiors into flattened two-dimensional scale models. A camera that the artist installed on the ceiling of various rooms takes pictures downwards of the interiors. The resulting images lay out space in symmetrical compositions that look like assemblages stripped off any kind of objectivity. The views into private homes and secret retreats bring up associations of the ubiquitous observation camera. The notion of surveillance is systematically played out by the artist to hint at society’s voyeuristic urge that popular culture has made mainstream.

    This, of course, is “The Wanderer”, painted by Caspar David Friedrich in 1808. As I discussed on today’s Daily Beast, it and other classic evocations of the Sublime came to mind Monday night, as the force of Hurricane Sandy came clear. I guess there’s still a question as to whether a work of art can ever capture nature’s terror and magnificence, or if its artiness will always win out and tame the subject matter. Worse, it could be that once nature itself has been seen in art, it can never regain its un-artful force.

  • The final mural! It was rough and I don’t actually like how I handled the colored chalk, but it was my first time with them so I don’t think it went too badly overall.

  • Negatives

    This was the box I kept all my negatives in for last semesters photo 1 class! It did not originally have the textured white stuff on the right side, literally happened an hour after finishing it, kind of a bummer. Anyways its still one of my favorites just because I thought of it as a kind of treasure box keeping all my pictures safe through-out the year.

    Posting now because I’m currently working on a few more of these to cover my media/politics class notebook and a journal and another notebook so I should have more to post soon!
