Landscape photos are quite amazing if they’re made by a professional. But when these landscape photos are put into layers to form multidimensional installations they go from amazing to truly spectacular. Japanese artist, Nobuhiro Nakanishi has created one such project called Layer Drawings.
For his works to use in his landscape photos, Nobuhiro Nakanishi has chosen places like tranquil forests, chill sunsets, and all sorts of other places perfectly suited to be landscape photos. Now, in order to generate a sense of three-dimensionality, Nakanishi has placed his landscape photos onto plexiglass acrylic panels, and each one by one in quick succession and in chronological order.
Strategically placed on the wall, these acrylic photos give the impression of actually being there, as well as the sense of passing time.
“We are all subject to the passing of time, yet each of us feels and perceives it in our own way,” Nakanishi says on his website. “Time itself has no shape or boundary and cannot be fixed or grasped. When we look at the photographs in these sculptures, we attempt to fill in the gaps between the individual images. We draw from our physical experiences to fill in missing time and space, both ephemeral and vague. In this series, I attempt to depict time and space as sensations shared by both viewer and artist.”
Now, the installation is amazing in and of itself. But what it really does is that it brings nature in the form of landscape photos indoors, and gives us a perspective of what’s outside and what we’re missing.
