using high-resolution digital photographs of ornate frames at the louvre museum in paris as source material, i have taken frames and digitally filled them with the content of themselves.
this project was born of the idea that, on several visits to the louvre, i was often more interested in the artistic merit of the frame than the art itself. the result hopefully challenges the viewer’s notion not only of what art is, but the viewer’s own perceptions about where to find and appreciate art in various settings such as the louvre.
