Photo of the Week: Kinetic Capture
Some years ago Richard Prince presented photographs of Sam Abell’s, Marlboro Man as his own, raising the question, “Is this art?” “The photograph of an advertisement of a myth” still stirs critics over 30 years later. Cybertoad’s photo of Carlos Cruz-Diez’s Untitled (Crosswalk) might conjure similar thoughts of image thievery. However, Cruz-Diez’s brand of Kinetic Art, is presented as stationary art, using carefully calculated colors and forms to interact with our movements and points of view. Each of us encounters it in a different way. Cybertoad experienced it in the form of this engagingly beautiful photo, in turn making it her own.
