sipping air: lumen prints

This piece of art and design drew my attention because artist Rachelle Bussières intersects photography and sculpture in a unique way. I thought her work was particularly interesting because instead of using art to produce meaning visually, she focuses on highlighting perception and crafting a new optical space. Each of her pieces represent a unique impression of the light, sky, and clouds from outside her NYC studio. I love how her work portrays the other end of the spectrum of art — that is, intricate work inspired by simple and purposefully meaningless things. This end of the spectrum still creates beautiful work that is pleasant to the eye.

While this work is produced without meaning, I think finding the “opposite” of it as we did in class in still possible by focusing on the light, depth, and colors!
