‘bending space’: photography of georges rousse

http://www.designboom.com/weblog/cat/10/view/3684/bending-space-photography-of-georges-rousse.html

although french artist georges rousse is a photographer, his work contains a lot of painting. his works are photographs of paintings done on buildings which are made to look like overlays of colour. from the single point perspective of rousse’s camera, his paintings are made to appear 2-dimensional. in reality you would see that the paintings are strategically done in 3 dimensions. this illusion is what makes rousse’s work so intriguing. his ‘durham’ project is currently the subject of the documentary ‘bending space’, a fitting tile to describe rousse’s work.

Awesome studio. They combine art science and design. Quoting from their own “about” section:

The Londond-based collective rAndom International was set up in 2002 by Stuart Wood, Flo Ortkrass and Hannes Koch in order to create unique and experiential design projects. One of rAndoms core themes in the past has been the friction between the digital and analogue domain. Searching at and working from the fringes of innovation in science, art and design, they have developed a series of installations and technologies that re-interpret the ‘cold’ nature of the digital and emphasise the analogue, often hands-on experience of the viewer.
