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
“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.”
