#Strideby in Space.
Our transit stations in #Vancouver are often adorned with really amazing art, and most of the time it’s photography. This installation is by Mungo Thompson for the Capture Photography Festival (@capturephotofest) - read his artist statement below:
“Negative Space by Mungo Thomson
Mungo Thomson is known for creating diverse projects that playfully use language, culture and media. Central to his artistic proposition is that of context – be it institutional, cultural or that of everyday life – through his work we are prompted to grasp the many challenges to our perception in the things we encounter daily.
Negative Space is an ongoing series of photographic murals of inverted astronomical imagery sourced from the Hubble Space Telescope. Thomson works with the Hubble archive in an ongoing way, generating a negative image every time the Hubble generates a positive one. Through a simple command in Photoshop, blacks become whites, whites become blacks, and all other colors are transformed into their complement.”
Although I often internally question a project that is so simple in it’s execution and reuses rather than creates an image - this is beautiful. And I love space, so I approve. #vancouverisawesome (at Yaletown - Roundhouse SkyTrain Station)
