Room Portraits by Menno Aden
Through challenging camera angles Menno Aden abstracts most familiar actual living environments and public interiors into flattened two-dimensional scale models. A camera that the artist installed on the ceiling of various rooms takes pictures downwards of the interiors. The resulting images lay out space in symmetrical compositions that look like assemblages stripped off any kind of objectivity. The views into private homes and secret retreats bring up associations of the ubiquitous observation camera. The notion of surveillance is systematically played out by the artist to hint at society’s voyeuristic urge that popular culture has made mainstream.
Ahh yes it must be that point in the life cycle of Jennifer Lawrence’s career where her popularity hits critical mass and she’s too well known to be cool anymore. The people who loved her 2 years ago start to grow tired of her constant media coverage and you’ll see a rise in snarky internet comments.
Watch: Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart take over hosting ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’
Pleasantly surprised at Seth’s interview skills. Very relaxed and comfortable.
