This project was created solely for the purpose to be seen from below by the public. Inspired by Andrea Pozzo's ability to create a 3D illusion on a 2D space, illusion plays with the theme of truth - a motif that is represented in Cathedrals and churches to give the effect of an opening to heaven on the ceiling of these buildings. ‚Äč The suspension aspect allows audiences to pause underneath the tondo, adjust themselves, rotate and inspect the piece. Turning themselves into the Performative Viewer, juxtaposed with the Still Painter. This Arte Util (active art) factor allows active information intake more likely, therefore making work more successful in my opinion. The subjects were all chosen at random, the majority from my university and the rest from my immediate circle of friends. So this piece does, to a certain degree, represent a generational identity.
