Hear the experts explain how Robert Rauschenberg blazed a new trail for art in the second half of the twentieth century.

From paintings including flashing lights to a stuffed angora goat, Rauschenberg’s appetite for incorporating things he found in the streets of New York knew no limits. Pop art silkscreen paintings of Kennedy sit alongside 1000 gallons of bentonite mud bubbling to its own rhythm. Rauschenberg even made a drawing which was sent to the moon.

Abstract Water Art, Kim Keever

Kim Keever’s large-scale photographs are created by meticulously constructing miniature topographies in a 200-gallon tank, which is then filled with water.

These dioramas of fictitious environments are brought to life with colored lights and the dispersal of pigment, producing ephemeral atmospheres that he must quickly capture with his large-format camera.

Christmas Light Sculptures, Laura Adel Johnson

Perth-based artist Laura Adel Johnson’s light installations never cease to amaze. Using fairy lights as her medium of choice, she explores ideals of human connectivity and emotions throughout her ongoing series of stunning sculptures. 

Johnson was first inspired to use lighting in her practice when she saw the “gaudy” Christmas lights and decorations during her 2007 residency in Omaha, Nebraska.

Lighting, Layers and Reflections by Autumn de Wilde

American photographer, Autumn de Wilde has designed a pair of transparent and reflective jewel toned structures for a photo-shoot in the dry Californian landscape.  

Made of a combination of mirror and colored plexiglass, images of the landscape are reflected on the structure, and  the landscape is simultaneously cast with rose, warm gold and aqua tinted sunlight.
