Digitally altered fine art photograph of a turret at Cobb Hall. Cobb Hall at the University of Chicago was designed by architect Henry Ives Cobb, and is the oldest building on campus. Cobb modeled his designs after the Gothic style of architecture at Oxford in England. This series of photos includes digitally altered views of architectural details, including the Cobb Hall turret.
Two more days to see my University of Chicago cityscape photographs 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.
