What can be said with straight lines and primary colors?
Piet Mondrian is one of the pioneers of 20th-century abstract art. Mondrian's art was highly utopian and was concerned with a search for universal values and aesthetics. He was a founder and a contributor to the De Stijl art movement and an avid student of Theosophy. Mondrian proclaimed in 1914:
"Art is higher than reality and has no direct relation to reality. To approach the spiritual in art, one will make as little use as possible of reality, because reality is opposed to the spiritual. We find ourselves in the presence of an abstract art."
In this series, images of Mondrian paintings are projected onto a model, La Lunetta, using a mini-beamer.
