"Detail:1965 - ∞"
by sabine7 / July 25, 2007
In 1965 Roman Opalka started a project that will only end when he does. Opalka started a series of canvases called Details, paintings all numbers, starting at 1. The first canvases were black, but as he progressed, Opalka decided that grey would be less emotional and has continued to add more white after each canvas. In addition, in 1968, the artist started taking a photograph of himself after each Detail was complete, so there is a series of images showing him age as he continues his project, working always towards infinity.
