More inspiration: ye olde underhive. Or perhaps Thee Undderhyvve (am I doing that right?). Giovanni Piranesi was an Italian artist famous for his etchings of Rome and of fictitious and atmospheric prisons. These prison etchings were called ‘capricci’ – an artistic term meaning fantastical aggregations of archeological elements, architecture and ruin. It occurs to me that capricci are one of my favourite things (and it’s a pretty good term to describe Necromunda photography) but a google image search just brings up lots of images of screaming children (one of my least favourite things).
The video above is a walkthrough of Piranesi’s etchings created for an exhibition, it wasn’t actually created by the man himself as he died in 1778 and so didn’t have access to broadband.
