100 Boots by Eleanor Antin
For her 100 Boots project, Eleanor Antin photographed rubber boots in a variety of scenarios set mostly around Southern California. The boots themselves performed as active characters; some configurations emphasized an “everyman” quality and personal experiences such as economic hardship, while others alluded to the war in Vietnam, and the excitement of the big city. Antin printed each photograph as postcards, which she mailed to hundreds of people, allowing the boots’ narrative to unfold over the course of twenty-eight months. Their journey ended at the Museum of Modern Art, where all fifty-one of the postcards were ultimately displayed.

Photography by Petros Chrisostomou.
Petros Chrisostomou photographs small-scale, ordinary, ephemeral objects in architectural models that he constructs himself, and then dramatically arranges, often employing lighting and staging conventions of the theatre. With the alteration of scale and reversal of the relation between object and environment, between imaginary and real space, his photographs challenge the viewer’s visual certainties. The illusionary effect he achieves highlights the artist’s playful approach, which fluctuates between mimicry of the real world and construction of a surreallistic reality.
