“Spectrum”, Cosimo Scotucci’s installation for Times Square

“Spectrum”, Cosimo Scotucci’s installation for Times Square

Emanuele D'Angelo · 5 months ago · Art

“Is it possible to create an installation that celebrates people uniqueness while laying the foundation for an inclusive society of tomorrow?”
Cosimo Scotucci started from this question to imagine his latest beautiful installation entitled “Spectrum”. Last time he had created inside the Pantheon the largest darkroom in the world, we talked about it here, an installation that wanted to celebrate people, and in particular the courage and attitude of each of us.

This time instead with Spectrum he wants to celebrate diversity and pave the way for a more inclusive society.
New York City will be the stage of his spectacular urban art installation for which the set design is already ready.

In Cosimo Scotucci’s idea, Spectrum requires every screen and billboard in Times Square to display a single monochromatic color, creating an ever-changing composition, showing all possible shades of light.

The Italian artist and architect was inspired by the experiment of the English scientist Isaac Newton, who succeeded in revealing the nature of light through a prism. White light is actually composed of myriad colors that can be observed by passing through a prism.

For Cosimo Scotucci, just as Newton demonstrated with white light and his prism, each individual is a single shade in the full display of colors we call humanity. Times Square is ready to be invaded by the colors of Spectrum, here are all the photos of the installation.

The aerial and conceptual photography by Brad Walls

The aerial and conceptual photography by Brad Walls

Tommaso Berra · 6 days ago · Photography

The popular photographer Brad Walls presented “Detached, in Harmony”, his latest series of photographs inspired by the past two years of pandemic.
The point of view is aerial, which distinguishes all of Walls’ artistic production. In this latest project we don’t have the sensation of looking at the scene through a mechanical eye but with an impersonal gaze that observes women in colorful costumes moving in a desert. The blue sky annuls the depth of the background, while the space is defined only by the choreography of the subjects, and by the shadows that the sun casts on the sand. The bodies become mannequin and all distances are studied and symmetry cancels the spontaneity of movements.

Brad Walls’ “Detached, in Harmony” is one of the few cases of conceptual aerial photography. Not using a handheld camera for conceptual shots is an unusual choice, but it helps represent the emotional distance experienced by the artist during the pandemic.
“The figures are purposefully static, to symbolise how we have been frozen in time over the past 18 months.” commented Walls.
Detached, in Harmony’ placed second in the 2021 Fine Art Photography Awards ‘Conceptual’ category, and placed silver in both the prestigious PX3 awards and Moscow Fine Art Awards of 2021. The artist currently plans to exhibit ‘Detached, in Harmony’ in a solo exhibition in 2022.

Check out the artist’s work on his official website.

The expressions of the human body in the shots of Ophelia

The expressions of the human body in the shots of Ophelia

Collater.al Contributors · 2 days ago · Art, Photography

For some people photography is a hobby, for others, it can also become a profession, but first and foremost it is a form of expression and incredible discovery.
For Feli, aka Ophelia, photography has been gaining importance over time, and for the past year or so it has become part of her daily routine, but for a long time it was simply a seductive and fascinating art form.

Ophelia is 25 years old and lives in Hamburg, Germany. While studying to become a psychotherapist, she plays with analogue photography and creates intriguing portrait photographs.

Her photographic style is intimate, poetic and welcoming, putting the human body at the center of the discourse and using an essential aesthetic to tell the story of the purity of human emotions. The protagonists of her photographs communicate through their bodies, looks and expressions and convey opposite and complementary feelings.

For Ophelia, bodies offer infinite perspectives, variations and possibilities of abstraction. Portraying them in a photograph means emphasising their importance and reflecting their beauty and uniqueness.

See a selection of her shots here and follow her on Instagram to discover all her work.
