rosemarys baby arrives

“Rosemary’s Baby Arrives” Contest Entry

My name is Peter Stuart Lakanen, I am a U.S. citizen living in Florida who is over 18 years of age.

My submission is a mixed media piece that subverts the traditional idea of a baby announcement by re-framing it as a prediction from a (presumably) fictional remote viewing project at The Vatican.  I began with the original artwork that I created using fiftythree’s app Paper on my iPad, which is supposed to be what the remote viewer created prior to killing himself.  The rest is best described as document forgery in order to create the appearance of an urgent notification to The Pontiff regarding this most unusual of predictions.

This project was a lot of fun and I thank NBC for continuing to encourage artists with promotions such as this and the Artist In Residence contest for season two of Hannibal.
