John Baldessari’s In Still Life 2001-2010 is a continuation of his 2001 piece In Still Life, which invited LACMA visitors to digitally rearrange 38 objects within Abraham van Beyeren’s Banquet Still Life (1667), creating a new still life of their own.
The newly launched site expands the project’s audience and participants to anyone with a flash-enabled browser, allowing you to rearrange the banquet and share your work via Twitter, Flickr, and Facebook. Here’s the Flickr stream of still lifes. But it doesn’t stop there, there’s also an iPhone app to (re-)create on the go.
In Still Life 2001-2010 was launched in tandem with the Baldessari retrospective Pure Beauty at LACMA.
