This series by conceptual artist Michael Jantzen reminds me of the glitch Google Earth photos collected by Michael Valla. Entitled Reforming The Built Environment, Jantzen describes this series as a surreal reinterpretation of known structures such as houses, churches, apartment buildings, and other conventional built forms, including furniture. He takes photos of these structures using a digital camera then manipulates them in various ways with the computer in order to create completely new and unexpected versions of the original houses, churches, apartments, etc. In some of the images, people (and sometimes animals) were juxtaposed to the manipulated structures to heighten the surreal nature of the images, suggesting that the structures might actually be physically built.
My intent for this work as an artist is to explore ways in which the known world can be altered in order to expand its potentials in the minds of the viewers, allowing them to create their own personal stories about these new realities.
