This series makes use of projection photography---a technique that originated in the 1960s with the work of John French, in which photographic images were projected onto a model. In this series, images of Mondrian paintings are projected onto a model, La Lunetta, using a mini-beamer.
Piet Mondriaan is known for being one of the pioneers of 20th-century abstract art. During the course of his lifetime, he changed his artistic direction from figurative painting to an increasingly abstract style, until he reached a point where his artistic vocabulary was reduced to simple geometric elements. 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. Mondriaan 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. Art should be above reality, otherwise it would have no value for man."
