Projection Mapping Art Installation
Dave Gordon has long been fascinated by what he calls “Iterative collaboration” in which artists, who have never interacted, collaborate over time and space. Tonight’s projection mapping installation is an example of iterative collaboration which spans more than a century and two continents. For centuries artists have been directly referring to the work of artists before them. For example, Roy Lichtenstein’s artworks on exhibit here at Selby Gardens represent iterations of Monet’s Water Lilies.
Paying homage to Roy Liechtenstein and Claude Monet, for this installation, I have collaborated with the artists listed above, as well as a multitude of international digital artists. Incorporated into the projected installations, he has manipulated and collaged together raw and stock footage, photographs and illustrations, digital renderings, and my own unique artwork.
