Ross Racine

5 Jan

Artist Ross Racine is an artist who does freehand drawings of fictional, planned communities from an aerial perspective. I like his work because all of the pieces are photo-real yet contain patterns and an level of symmetry that wouldn’t be found in the real world.

I am reminded of various data visualization techniques when I see Racine’s execution of the work and think about each item being a household with living, breathing families.

Investigating the relation between design and actual lived experience, the works subvert the apparent rationality of urban design, exposing conflicts that lie beneath the surface. These digital drawings are a comment on the fears as well as the dreams of suburban culture.
