This plate shows all the physical forms of projection that relate to the picture and image. Alberti’s window, anamorphosis, camera obscura and Serlio’s perspectives.
the skull feels too superficially applied to the drawing – perhaps insert it as a 3d sculpture as with Robert lazzarini’s?
Then you can be more deliberate about how you insert in into the drawing – and again it lets you move the conversation away from the 2d flattened reading to the 3d.
I saw these years ago at the Whitney – and I think they were made of bone dust and reconstituted as these warped skulls.
Thanks! I was going for the same effect as with the Ambassadors painting, where it a very superficial application in the foreground. But you’re right, i think for the sake of the argument, its better to use something thats 3 dimensional.
