Changing Seasons Behind a Little House

Behind a Little House

Manuel Cosentino is an Italian artist and photographer. He studied at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Rome, specializing in motion design before moving to London where he worked as a Visual Effects Artist in the Film Industry. Loved his work and what he did with this project, It really needs an eye and a very creative mind to come up with something like that. Kudos

Manuel explains:

Behind a Little House is an intimate participatory art project which can only be accessed through the pages of an artist’s book and chooses to sacrifice dissemination (large-scale web 2.0 approach) to reclaim a physical connection with the audience.

I wanted the viewer to start as an outside observer, a spectator, and then suddenly realize that they can participate – the wall-mounted photographs lead up to the artist book where everyone is invited to contribute by drawing on the last photograph sheared on each page, giving impromptu co-authors the freedom to shape the direction and the content of the artwork. Text, photographs, and drawings provide a framework to the interpretation of the artwork until external contribution starts to add to the dialogue. The project – with its open-ended narrative – intends to start a conversation with the public; its nature is purposefully left mutable, open to change and to change.”
