Slanted Mansion: What Happens Behind the Creative Process
If any of you lovely tumblr-ers have visited the Whitney Biennial this year so far, you’ve probably seen Dawn Kasper’s installation performance entitled, This Could Be Something if I Let It. She has filled a gallery of the third floor of the Whitney Museum with most of her belongings, including a bed, stacks of books, numerous small appliances, artworks and art supplies. In this exhibit, the viewers get to step inside of and view firsthand the studio and life of an artist as they are in the process of creating.
As viewers on the opposite end of the creative process, we act as consumers of the artist’s work. We see the final product. However, it is the controlled chaos and remnants of thought proceses that happen beforehand that intrigue designer and photographer, Siobhan Frost. His series entitled Slanted Mansion, incorporates interviews and photographs of the spaces and studios of creative individuals from around the world. He currently works on freelance design and photography in London.
