Project Details

The evolution of art in Western civilization is an epic journey, a mirror to humanity’s past from its ancient roots. Seniors and juniors at High Tech High demonstrate the web that has been spun by artistic giants such as Michelangelo, Bernini, Picasso, Dali, and Blu. Each Explodation is a unique comparison of periods, movements, or artists, where exploded images make clear the method, subject, reason, and influences of the fine arts we hold dear as a human race. ¬†Although each page is distinctive, collectively they uncover countless of connections spanning across cultures and centuries.
