Ansel Adams and Josef Albers were artists who (literally) wrote the book on their respective mediums: photography and painting. Adams is best known for his idealized and romantic landscape imagery that present a perfect illusion of vast, unbounded space. Albers explored the properties of perception through his abstract forms. They lived, roughly, at the same time.
In this series, I downloaded and printed iconic Ansel Adams imagery on plain printer paper and sewed Albers' Structural Constellations onto them. Through hand-stitching, I bound together these opposing systems of Modern representation.
