Rob Carter. Stone on Stone

Stone on Stone by ROB CARTER

ROB CARTER‘s work uses stop-motion animation, time-lapse video and large format photographs to spotlight iconic and political structures in our urban environment, especially sports stadia, skyscrapers, churches, and other historical landmarks. Cut photographic images and living plants are used to make often humorous retellings of history – morphing and recontextualizing architecture and urban development. Recent work draws parallels between the inspiration and power of the natural world, and human attempts to understand, manipulate and control it in the past, present and future.– by Brooklyn based

I really like Stone on Stone stop-motion video animation which starts with Le Corbusier’s La Tourette monastery in France (Modernism) and finishes with unfinished Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine, NYC (High Gothic )

The video uses this anomalous but single-minded architectural vision as the foundation for a new emergence of Gothic religious expression, resulting in a complete and unified fantasy cathedral – akin to the building that the Church of Saint John might have aspired to be.
