Illustrations by Californian graphic artist Erik Reichenbach
Erik Reichenbach was a two-time contestant on the hit reality television show Survivor. Although Erik is not an extremely popular contestant among fans and viewers, he’s notable for coming 5th place in both seasons. Outside of the TV realm, this Santa Clarita-based graphic artist has been creating picture books filled with wild characters since grade school.
His illustrations focus on the importance of imagination, a humbling sense of wonder, and our constant placement within a beautiful and overwhelming palette of emotions. You should check out there rest of his work here.
During the 1960s and 1970s, Nauman created various claustrophobic and enclosed spaces that were designed to disorientate his audiences. In this installation, a long corridor is shrouded in darkness, whilst two rooms on either side are illuminated by bulbs that are timed to flash at different rates. The particular length and width of the corridor, together with the intensity of the intermittent lights, function to direct our movements as we traverse the space. No longer simply passive spectators, Nauman transforms us into active participants who are nevertheless controlled and manipulated by his reconstruction of the gallery’s layout.
