Sharing some of the work from the LACMA and Snap project Monumental Perspectives. I think it's a great use of a new tool in the hands of artists.
Monumental Perspectives (Collection II) | la revolución es la solución! by Kang Seung Lee
la revolución es la solución! stems from activist responses to the 1991 murder of Latasha Harlins. Kang Seung Lee uses kites associated with Korean memorial services and New Year’s celebrations to map out the responses initiated after Harlins’s death. Lee amplifies activist leaders who have worked across racial and class lines to rebuild their communities. LINK
Monumental Perspectives (Collection II) | What the Willow Whispers by Sandra de la Loza
In What the Willow Whispers, Sandra de la Loza revives native plants in South Los Angeles. A dynamic ecosystem bursts through concrete. Music by local artists adds to the environment. The lens recalls the past to urge future ecologies. LINK
LACMA × Snapchat: Monumental Perspectives (Collection II) | The River Once Ran by Judy Baca
The River Once Ran transforms the concrete of the Los Angeles River back to a natural riverbed and offers layered images and sounds from animals, plants, and stories depicted in The Great Wall of Los Angeles. LINK
