Interventions is a series of photomontages from Michael Jantzen that are created with images of some of his built and un-built structures. These images are superimposed into various real world landscapes in order to inspire stories in the minds of the viewers, about what these things are, and how they got there.
Often images of people and/or animals are added to the photo collages (juxtaposed to the structures) in order to amplify the surreal nature of the stories.
Jantzen hopes that the incorporation of images of his original structures into the real world landscapes, will help to create totally original photomontages.
My work is very well known around the world. It has been featured in thousands of articles in books, magazines, newspapers, and on the Web. My work has been shown in many galleries, and on various TV documentaries. It has also been exhibited at the National Building Museum, the Canadian Center for Architecture, the Harvard School of Design and Architecture, and at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Most of my work merges art, architecture, technology, and sustainable design into one unique experience. Extreme innovation is my goal in everything I create. Most of this innovation has been focused on the re-invention of the built environment, and photography.
