” Automonument”
Niv Rozenberg, United States
Category: Professional, Abstract
Entry Description: My work explores the complexities within the urban environment, by focusing on the essential large-scale and unavoidable congestion. In Automonuments I used photography and digital manipulation in order to isolate visual perspectives of high-rise buildings mainly in New York City. This exaggerated view allows me to break the visual and spatial congestion of the city by creating an archetypal form, isolated from function and separated from the city’s total urban structure. Duplicating and stitching one level of a building to another emphasizes the tension between form and function as well as between the individual and the global. This work does not document reality but reconstructs it, creating a view that cannot be seen, an intensification of reality.
