Metropolitan Gestalt

Metropolitan Gestalt - Richard Smith - RSMITHINGS.comThe subject matter and title of this piece are an interplay on the location of the background itself: a downtown corridor in my city, and the gestalt-esque coming together of the various elements. I knew the background would be a fun device for a creation, but it was only after seeing it did the vision come together in my head for the final composition, involving pieces of which I had shot much earlier with no idea where they would land. Only after revisiting the composition years later did I fully appreciate the process as part of the overall result. See the source components here.

Musical accompaniment: Glassjaw – Cosmopolitan Blood Loss
