I leader mondiali del G8 visti da Anestis Anestis | Collater.al 6

Greek artist Anestis Anestis has created an interesting project called “This is not a group” that is on the social Tumblr and depicts the main world leaders of the G8. The project consists of four hundred shots overlapping one on top of the other, making the faces blurred but at the same time familiar. For the realization of the project was used a custom software designed with Processing, which is able to save images of Google results, overlapping them. As the artist explains:

“Each pixel captures the light and color details of numerous original images, and the huge algorithmic details displayed in large dimensions challenge the viewer to fuse his physiological perceptions with their digital

The faces of Angela Merkel and Donald Trump remain vaguely recognizable because of the color combinations and the fusion of all these colors takes back the Impressionist style, as he himself states:

“…a reference to Claude Monet’s impressionist method of painting the same scene many times to capture the essence of passing seasons.”

Images are undoubtedly interesting and a mirror of an increasingly blurred era.
