Christian Boltanksi

The way he projects his work is so cool, and I love the way he uses light to make his work powerful, strong and scary. I think the fact that the faces are all from the obituary paper is slightly messed up, and that maybe there are a couple of screws missing in his head, yet none the less it is probably the extremity of his work that makes it so powerful. His use of faces expresses what he is trying to note within the contrast between the light. Maybe he is shining light on dead people in a way to suggest that they still have light shining on them in some way.
