projections











Jenny Holzer's project, Projections, is chilling and beautiful. Jenny uses words and light to create ghostly projections that she then snaps photos of. there's something so gorgeous and raw about words when they're taken out of their usual environment of paper and put somewhere you never thought you would see them. words are powerful...turn them into this sort of art and they possess a different kind of eerie power altogether.

  1. very cool. haunting and chilling, and sort of film-noir, don't you think?

  2. Beautiful! Makes me think of an installation Peter Greenaway did ten years ago in Bologna, Italy, using the ancient buildings of Piazza Maggiore as screens. I was there and it was marvellous.

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
