Wow what an awesome installation! that is just cool!
Except that isn’t an installation, that’s not even the art. This is:
huh? what? Yeah the LightJet Print is the art. The photo and the print are the real art. There is no installation and there never was, well not life-size anyway.
It’s all part of a series of work by artist David DiMichele called Pseudodocumentation. At first I felt a little cheated, but the more I think about it, the more I appreciate and enjoy this pseudo art. In this day and age I experience most installation art exactly as above, as an image not an experience. These pseudo installation pieces serve to underscore exactly that point, and the more I meditate on them the more I like them.
I mean if they were real they would be awesome, but even as mockups they are engaging and as an added bonus they remind me of set-design models I used to make and play with so its a nostalgia/conceptual art win win.
