Place and Space

Whilst researching place and space this week, I came across an artist called Krzysztof Wodiczko. His projected images are integrated into the architecture of the building or monument, whether a facade, an arch, a column, a flight of steps, or a statue. These buildings or monuments have often become part of the scenery for passers-by (space). Through images the artist raises questions that renew and update the building's basic function. In a way he enriches, transforms and manipulates the initial message of public architecture in order to shock, to denounce and to arouse public opinion.
