Soul-Searching Holographic Mesh Portraits


Perspective plays a crucial role in artist Seth Wulsin's three-dimensional installations. The Brooklyn-based artist's series entitled Ánimas exhibits portraits that appear across several mesh screens. Unlike your typical paintings, these portraits have an image shifting ability, similar to a holographic. The large-scale pieces work with space and light to engage and encourage a mobile audience.

By painting on mesh screens and suspending them at an equidistance from one another, Wulsin generates a visual with depth whose appearance changes, depending on the spectator's angle of viewing and distance, in relation to the piece. The sculptural installations require its audience to move around to properly experience it. What's most remarkable about Wulsin's series is how, visually, each "painting" interweaves and works with one another, however, they never physically touch.
