Psychogeographies by Dustin Yellin

There is an exhibit at the Kennedy Center lobby right now that caught my attention due to the creative recycling of images.

The artist Dustin Yellin took many layers of glass to make each piece. Each one shows a human figure, but when you zoom in, you see that the people are made from many tiny images or dabs of paint.

The images and paint are strategically placed on different layers of glass, which gives the art a three-dimensional feeling.

There is a great video you can watch about how the pieces are made, showing the artist and a team carefully cutting images out of magazines and books.
