Observations on Art 7.24

This little film just fascinates me to no end. London artist Maisie Broadhead is transformed into a 19th century photograph for the upcoming exhibition "Seduced by Art: Photography Past and Present" at the National Gallery in London. The original photo by David Octavious Hill, to the left, will be in the same room. The show runs from October 31, 2012 through January 20, 2013.

"Artist Maisie Broadhead originally trained as a jeweller and now produces fine art photographic parodies. Her work is being featured as part of a ground-breaking exhibition at the National Gallery. As part of the exhibition Jack Cole and Maisie Broadhead directed a video to be hung next to the 1844 photographic print by Hill and Adamson that it references. It was Produced by Cap Gun Collective, Edited by James Norris at Whitehouse London and Post and VFX by Carbon FX."

7/27 update - For some unknown reason you can only watch the video on Vimeo now but the link still goes right to it so I'll just leave it as is.
