It’s not every day that you look up at the trees in the local park and see a gigantic 3D gargoyle head staring directly back at you.
But then again, if you’re French visual artist Clément Briend, that’s the norm. His visual series aptly titled ‘Legends’ involves projecting & inserting 3D renderings of iconic historical characters into modern day surroundings.
“I always wanted to photograph the world without it being too faithful to what it is. I always imagined devices that can transform and intervene with the light in things that I photograph. the focus became photographs that include projections and hence the idea of doing shows with projected images.”
The photos below are from the Parc de Saint-Cloud, a 460 hectare national park just outside of Paris where he recently showcased the ‘Legends’ series. His ultimate goal was to put the general public at the very heart of the monument – we think he’s done so with startling and fantastic effect don’t you?
