  #129 Plagiarism... With Artistic License!
Entry 7 of 16
   
 
The Floating Box       ©2013 wrosenthal
Panasonic DMC-LX5       7th place, 100 points
1/80s, f3.1, ISO 400, 75mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: OOC jpeg with slight adjustments to brightness and contrast.       Extra Info: James Turrell is a master of the art of light and its manipulation for illusion and artistic expression. In this shot, what appears to be a rectangular solid floating in space is actually a projection against a flat surface. It is more a tribute to the original artist than to this photographer that the illusion is still present in the photograph. On exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art: James Turrell, A Retrospective.

    Very nicely done - hats off to capturing quite an interesting art form.

    elliott, I must have misinterpreted your intent, or perhaps read it too literally. I did not see that 'copying' someone's work was the object. I did what I frequently do. That is, use photography to interpret an actual work, but making the viewer see it the way I want it seen. Not necessarily the way the original artist wanted it seen. That's the case here. Your experience with the original would not be like what you see in this shot. That's perhaps more clear in the Warhol interpretation in the Open category. I hate it when I misunderstand something like this. But there it is.

    Iif anything this challange introduced me to some artist's I probably never would have realized existed. Some of the entries are really imaginative, I would have never come up with something like this. Nice entry.

    interesting shot. not quite what i had in mind with the challenge unless this is not the original but a projection that you made into a dark corner in which case i'd like it a lot more.
as a photo, much better than the ones that come up on google of that work.

    I love this picture at all points. It's dark and a light painting, sculpture or whatever... But I'm sorry, it is not my top vote, because I could not find the ONE artwork you were plagiarizing...
In addition on my monitor I can see the floor (no floating in space effect) - but my monitor seems to be too bright, maybe that's why everybody complains that my pictures are too dark... ...an old story!

EDIT: OK, I found the original....and can see the floor too. Your lighting is perfect.
Great shot!

    Despite your comment I still think this took considerable skill to get such an excellent photo. Very well done.

    Amazing how you made this photo look like an optical illusion. The lighting is superbly done. One of my faves.

    I understand that you have taken a photo of what you saw in the LA County museum: and not you recreated this and then took a photo? If I'm wrong and it is the latter, I apologize for not scoring this one higher.
