Blog / Augmented Landscape

I wanted to try ‘augmenting’ a photographic landscape with a layer of graphics, drawing attention to the rhythms in the scene. The result reminds me of the music-inspired paintings of Wassily Kandinsky and his contemporaries. These artists explored the overlap between the musical and the visual, giving their paintings titles like ‘Fugue (Controlled Impression)’ and ‘Coloured Composition (Homage to J.S. Bach)’. Below my wintery Canary Wharf scene is a Kandinsky painting from 1923 called ‘Composition VIII’.
