 - Homage to Leonardo - Techno-Impressionist Museum - Techno-Impressionism - art - beautiful - photo photography picture - by Tony Karp

This image is based on Da Vinci's famous sketch entitled "Vitruvian Man."

Here, I started with an artist's manikin - more of a stick figure representation. The figure was embedded into a steel matrix, carved out to receive it. The photograph was made with polarized light and a special set of filters that show the lines of stress on the figure and its steel container.

It becomes an allegory for modern man and the forces that bear on him.

I wonder what Leonardo would have thought of this.
