Artist: Marco Brambilla

Marco Brambilla is a visual and installation artist famous for his re-contextualizations of well-known and found imagery. He is best known for his Megaplex trilogy and photo-realistic computer simulations of an Apollo launch. Brambilla is considered a pioneer of 3D technology.

His video collages are really impressive. I can’t imagine how much time and thought went into them. I found the gradual ascension from hell to heaven in “Civilization” pretty cool. The beginning scene reminded me of Mordor from The Lord of the Rings.  I found Brambilla’s description of “Ghost” interesting and powerful, as it was a deconstruction of the effects the public eye has on those subjected to its gaze/judgement.
