Robert Rauschenberg

Another artist that Heidi was already looking into. I think this is more of a pallet thing, though I like the way his work has its own sort of ecosystem. There's a sense of restriction inherent in each piece, like the objects that compose each work are both the only materials available and the only materials that were exactly right.

Here are some images I'm looking at from the photographer Roger Ballen. I'm really into the child-like scrawling all over the walls, and the masks. I don't think we necessarily want face masks for the actors, but how can the costume be like a mask? The newspaper suits are also really interesting to me.
