Age: 70

Hometown: Brooklyn

Specialties: Architect, landscape architect, performance and installation artist

Found love for art: When his father took him to museums and operas as a child

Website: Interested me, no portraying information other than views/slides of his artwork. His works seem dreary, and surpass a melancholy tone

My favorite piece: Interior of United Bamboo Store

Why: This not only touches the fashion world, but it brings the design elements to a store selling clothes,  in which Acconci tried to create the interiors to resemble the clothing it sells. The mediums used were similar to projection pvc material. The store architecture was created to sell the clothing, and for the store to be touched itself.

Not only is Vitiello a visual artist, but he is a sound artist as well. His main focus was the World Trade Center project called World Views that  he took upon. He recorded sounds from the 91st floor using his own home built microphones which he then incorporated the sound exhibitions into his work.  He is a very interesting man and I think it is fascinating that he focuses on the little sounds that you never pay attention to, until he actually brings them to your attention.

A native of Hawaii, Pfeiffer is a video artist, who so called “builds relationships with his material” that he works with. Pfeiffer uses pop culture to assimilate with the going 21st century. His work is said to explore race, religion, commerce, art and philosophy. Finding his video work came across as difficult to me. I am upset about this because I am actually very curious as to what his final video pieces look like. He said it takes months just to finish 2 minutes of his final product sometimes. I give him so much credit for this because I have trouble staying focused on a piece of work for more than a week!

These are two images I found to catch my eye the most. Clearly they are greatly edited, and the second one is a video. The colors in the airplane one as astounding, and the symmetry is what drew my eye in the most.

Bill Viola is known as one of the leading artists worldwide. According to his biography, for the past 35 years “he has created videotapes, architectural video installations, sound environments, electronic music performances, flat panel video pieces, and works for television broadcast.” Using his talent for music, he combines them with video images and still images, creating one form of his works of art.

His video works are displayed in museums, galleries and cinemas worldwide. The one below, Acceptance, is the one that interested me the most.

Not only does his artwork get published and public attention, but his pieces of writing do as well. They are translated in different languages to accommodate different cultures.

I found this video on youtube interesting. It suggests the whole “water idea” behind his work, that explains that he fell off a boat when he was younger. I don’t quite understand it completely, but it brings upon many ideas to be on the quiet, intense video art created with water.

Paintings, wall drawings, light boxes, sculpture and projections are Ritchies specialities. Time listed Ritchie in the top 100 innovators for the new millennium. His work was said to be “the unthinkable or not yet thought” of designs are truly a statement to think about when looking at his work. Not only is his website fabulous, and the easy to use website ALSO gives a biography of Ritchie which I found extremely helpful.

My favorite piece after looking through his work is called “It stands decided”. It seems busy, and engaging, and I love it. After looking at this piece, I wondered how long it took to complete, and how he thought of the design. Did he base it off something? Is it a replica of something? And more importantly, how did he come up with the title?

Clearly, Jeff Baij likes to keep things about himself MIA. So, instead of focusing on his types of art, his perspectives, and his mediums, I am going to focus on the things I liked and enjoyed on Baij’s art.

This piece of work cracked me up. I have no idea what it means, for him to say “I’ve got good news! The gum you like is going to come back in style.” but I find it hilarious and whimsical for him to reverse the words and create it into art. I remember when I used to do things like this as a kid while playing around on the computer in Kid Pix.

This was my favorite thing to play with on his website. It was relaxing, and fun to see which sounds combined together created what.

I feel like this shows one of Baij’s interests. Hockey, which seems totally un-art related, he created into art. The different angles are amazing and the video edits. I really like the colors and think the vibrance of the red works perfectly in the three frames.
