Geoffrey Farmer – Leaves of Grass

Geoffrey Farmer – Leaves of Grass

"Leaves of Grass" by the canadian artist Geoffrey Farmer consists hundreds of shadow puppets that have been fabricated from images cut outs from the American Life magazine. The images are dawn from five decades of the journal, from 1935 to 1985. Millions of peoples, especially Americans relied on Life for their view of the world.

As the title suggest, both (the photographic archive of the twenty century) and the space (with the three-dimensional, sculptural activation of collage) are volatilized in this work.
