Jenny Holzer – Projections.

Originally using printing making and painting to create abstract images, but eventually moving on to working with text as an an art form; Jenny Holzer became quite renowned during the 70’s.

Her main medium is the use of LED signs in public places, but also includes such things as bronze plaques, sings, stickers, t-shirts, photographs, condoms and light projection in various cities around the world.

Examples of her work can be found on her official site: here http://www.jennyholzer.com/

I have looked at her work as we were thinking of of projecting our film/animation onto a wall/series of posters to create an installation within the studio.

The following are two of my particular favourites:

I like these two images as even if the text is just regular and simple text, the form it takes when projected over a building is very interesting, as the way the text breaks up creates interesting linear patterns.
