Leon's Thoughts on Art

Waterspout on Bond Chapel by Leon Sarantos at the International Streaming Festival Until December 18

Waterspout on Bond Chapel
 
 
 
Waterspout on Bond Chapel is a digitally altered photograph of  the waterspout on Bond Chapel with shades of green.  Bond Chapel at the University of Chicago was designed by Coolidge & Hodgdon (1925–26) and is another excellent example of Gothic Revival architecture in the Main Quadrangle.  This is part of a series of photos that features digitally altered views of architectural details on campus. It is currently on exhibit online at the International Streaming Festival.

Digital Gothic: University of Chicago Cityscapes by Leon Sarantos at International Streaming Festival 6th Edition, December 1 to 18


The International Streaming Festival 6th Edition - Online Now

The Streaming Festival 6th Edition is curated and sponsored by the isfth foundation, The Hague, The Netherlands, from December 1 to 18, 2011.  This online international exhibit includes  Video Artists, and for the first time this year, also 2D Artists.  I’m pleased that my Digital Gothic series of cityscape photos were selected, and hope you visit online - just a click away.  Over 30 2D artists are participating, as well as many video and sound artists.

My Digital Gothic series includes oil painting and photography of the Gothic Revival architecture on the University of Chicago Main Quadrangle, including architectural gems like Bond Chapel and Botany Pond, an Olmstead design.  My photographic art uses images of related Gothic architectural details, like gargoyles, tracery and turrets, which are manipulated to create unusual lighting, colors, and jumps in color gradation.  This provides a dramatic modern, photographic presentation of this century-old architectural order in such a way that the order is more readily comprehended and appreciated by the general viewer.
