A short video I made for a project in my final year of landscape architecture in UCD.
Through recorded observation at Pelletstown, Dublin 15 and the creation of an abstract three dimensional artistic expression using only wood found on site at Pelletstown, I wanted to portray the effects of human intervention on forest material and its resultant spatial characteristics.
To convey the resilience of forestry I looked at its past, present and future.
Finger Paintings by Paolo Troilo
By using nothing more than black and white paint and the hands he was gifted with Paolo Troilo is able to create incredibly expressive portraits that are bursting with energy. Although these portraits are of himself, he insists these are not self portraits, and that they are “portraits of human beings translated to a male body”. Sometimes the figures face is visible, sometimes obstructed, but their emotions are something we can all relate to. I’ve embedded a nice video below that gives a more in depth look into his work.
