Krzysztof Wodiczko

February 13, 2008


this is one of my favorite artists. in the intro class we are sharing artists that influence our work this week. earlier i asked my students to consider the “place of their images” in the world. often this world is branded by the visual culture created on a massive scale by multicultural corporations. but visual culture is vast and is increasingly made up of “public secrets” that lie just below the top layer of public signification we experience everyday. wodiczko is one of the artists who during the last twenty years has tactically placed his images in public to raise questions about what is hidden, implied, ambigous, etc.
