Junk? Art? It’s a Matter of Perspective

I hate modern art, but I thought this was clever, so I’m making an exception and allowing myself to enjoy this:

    Hardly modern. Anamorphic perspective goes back at least as far as Hans Holbein’s “The Ambassadors” in the 16th century.

    Salvador Dali used it (I don’t know if you consider him “modern art”).

    Anyway, this is a rather conventional piece. Hardly “modern”.

    I hate it when people randomly assemble trash and call it art.

    But this goes to show that trash CAN be art if you take the randomness OUT of it.

    Well done. Color me impressed.

    #1: Well, technically (as defined by labeled eras of art, FWIW), Dali would be classified as modern art, and even Da Vinci experimented with anamorphic perspective — but I can’t find any actual anamorphic sculpture (other than mirror animorphosis) prior to the last few decades.

    I wonder what the earliest such example would be — but not enough to knock myself out looking it up.

    I wonder how many hours it took to get all that stuff lined up juuuuust right to make the image possible.
