ArtPrize 2009: “salt & earth (2009)” by Young Kim

ArtPrize 2009 moves to phase two of the voting today. This afternoon they will announce the top 10 vote getters. From now to the end of the competition, the voting will be between those 10. (All 10 receive a cash award.) Over 32,000 people have registered to vote, casting over 320,000 votes in the first round.

One of the entries in the top 25 is salt & earth (2009), by Young Kim of Greensboro, North Carolina. Kim projects random pictures of people taken on the streets of Grand Rapids onto small piles of sand and clay. The result is incredible.
