I was looking at some online images by Andy Warhol and found this one, which I had never seen. It's a still frame from a 4 minute, 16mm portrait series he made.
And then I remembered that there's this large blank wall in my new studio. It's bigger than it looks, about 9 1/2 feet tall by 12' wide.
The light bulb went on. What appeals to me is that I have never been in a room where a portrait took up a whole wall, and wondered what it would be like to spend time in a space like that. I could always paint the portrait (and I prefer it to be of a stranger that I don't know), especially as the bricks could work as a magnification grid, but I want the feeling of a photograph.
Any ideas of how I could make this happen? Maybe project a negative onto the wall after it was coated with liquid light or something? Send a neg or large file out to a mural business? I was going to make a compilation from a lot of smaller prints, but I want it to be more of one piece.
The shot of the studio was taken w/ a cell phone, and everyone who has chimed in on the thread about 3D images and how photographs are, or are not, accurate representations of what we see should take note....this photo is very deceiving. The space is not squarish as it appears, it is much wider than it is long, and that table is much longer from the front where the laptop is back to the window. My cell phone really distorts proportions, and I never noticed that until now.
