Carlos Garaicoa: White on White

Photo-topography, Carlos Garaicoa.  Galleria Continua at the Armory Show 2012.

It looked like styrofoam in person, but apparently artist Caralos Garaicoa transferred photographs to polyspan (I suspect a material a lot like styrofoam) to create these white images.

Garaicoa is a Cuban artist who tends to explore Cuba’s identity and politics through its buildings. These archetectural scenes were clearly composed, but the precision of them crumbles away as you look closer.
