Mies-en-scène : The Farnsworth House

(art)n sets the scene with a new media take on a Mies Van Der Rohe classic. The Farnsworth House is reconstructed virtually with the addition of developed spacial elements to bring about a mise-en-scène truly worthy of the great architect and the PHSCologram medium. Careful attention was payed towards all elements of style and arrangement in this virtual stage just as Mies himself treated his architectural designs.

Reconstructing the Wright Space

Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural masterpiece the Robie House, this work reconstructs the home to give it new energy. The house appears to grow and advance out of the frame and towards the viewer. Movement and three dimensional appearance actively engage viewers and bring new life to the iconic structure.

Deconstructed Marina Towers

Detail from Aquatic Assemblage: The Maritime Metropolis

Much like the work of major (art)n inspirations by Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray, Aquatic Assemblage is a reconstructed work of vision involving three of Chicago's most stunning masterpieces of nautical influenced architecture. Within the triptych's panels, scale deconstructed views of Jeanne Gang's water waved Aqua Building, Sheldon Schlegman's sailing spurred Crain Communications Building (formerly the Smurfit-Stone), and Bertrand Goldberg's river run Marina Towers. Supporting each image stands a pedestal developed in relation to all three structures and their framework.

The Crain Communications Building was designed in 1983 by A. Epstein and Sons and was completed in 1984. The Marina City Complex and Marina Towers were designed in 1959 by Bertrand Goldberg and were completed in 1964. Aqua was designed in 2007 by a team led by Jeanne Gang of Gang Studio Architects and was completed in 2010.

Millennium Splendor: Cloud Gate

and Jay Pritzker Pavilion

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe once said "you have to borrow the sky when you cannot see it." This virtual photograph is a tribute to Chicago's rich skyline, rooted in architecture history and the arts, as exemplified by the Jay Pritzker Pavilion designed by Frank Gehry and Cloud Gate by Anish Kapoor. This unique skyscape portrait was sculpted on the computer in three dimensions to create the PHSCologram, a digital 3D photograph that is visible without glasses, and is a reflection of the inventive times Chicago continues to thrive in.
