He was an English Abstract Expressionist sculptor.
I really like the way he changed the way sculptures are viewed, not over a counter or a pedestal, but from the flor, as if they are an active part of your surroundings, I’m also interested in the way he constructs the narrative, it is like you can approach the piece from different angles, there is no main feature, it is more like you are entering an experience.
It was really great to discover a new approach in the discussion about reality and fiction, Also the ways movies can help us understand reality and also create it.
Ideas to explore:
Humans need fantasy to be able to deal with reality.
A lot of directors play with what you think you know.
You can think about virtual reality as a place where you are able to be somebody else, but maybe it is the opposite, virtual reality is the place in witch you can be the real version of you because you don’t have the restrains of the real world (society, culture, law).
This film has inspired me keep my research on this topic through the exploration of movies from great directors, this is the first List:
He was a British painter and sculptor, he had interest in abstract expressionism, he was really influenced by Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and Naum Gabo. He described some of his later works as ‘experiments in space to establish the illusion and the content of space in painting’
I really like the possibility of approaching a painting from different angles, it changes the way one can “read” the piece of art, Also the concept of an hybrid between painting and sculpture.
