About this product
- DescriptionMultimedia artist Clifford Ross looks beyond the natural world to uncover a world bound only by the imagination, much like in Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass. Images are reversed and landscapes reimagined. Ross uses old and new methods to produce exceptionally beautiful and radically redesigned conceptions of reality, presenting his own digital vision.
- Author BiographyMultimedia artist Clifford Ross began his career as a painter and sculptor after graduating from Yale in 1974, turning his attention to photography and other media in 1995. Frustrated by the lack of detail provided by existing cameras, in 2002 Ross invented and patented the R1 camera and produced some of the highest-resolution large-scale landscapes in the world. His work has been the subject of international museum exhibitions and can be found in numerous public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the J. Paul Getty Museum, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. His recent collaborations include the animated landscape video Harmonium Mountain, with an original score by Philip Glass, a multimedia installation with Pan Gongkai, President of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, and a stained glass wall with architects Mack Scogin and Merrill Elam for the U.S. Federal Courthouse in Austin, Texas. Two notable books on Ross include Through the Looking Glass (Hirmer, 2013), on the making of the Austin Wall, with an essay by Paul Goldberger, and Wave Music (Aperture 2005), featuring his Hurricane series, which includes an essay by philosopher Arthur Danto and an interview by novelist A.M. Homes.Paul Goldberger is a Pulitzer prize winning architecture critic for the New Yorker, where he has written the magazine s celebrated Sky Line column since 1997. He holds the Joseph Urban Chair in Design and Architecture at Parsons the New School for Design, where he was formerly dean.
