Reviewing the artwork of Robert Rauschenberg made me think of all the time back in high school where I wished I saved more memories.  I made scrapbooks for fun but I mean really incase some events that happened in my life. In this project I really want to capture signature moments in mine and other peoples lives. The scrapbook idea is based on real life events that bring out strong emotion and raw passion. Robert Rauschenberg Foundation focuses on the research that goes into selecting the photos that go along with deciding what images actually goes into his pieces.  By pushing the boundaries of everyday artist to explore past memories creats a leave behind that is far greater that a book. As I was reading into the article pertaining to his foundations I realize that Rauschenberg idea is to capture events for the future generation. The things he sees is captivating and impeccable to the mind. He conveys the idea that we all need to analyze and be apart of the event.

 

My idea towards the gallery theme is scrapbook a significant event in your life. To re-live the event that makes you who you are. Sure most people see scrapbooking as tedious and something you only do when you’re at the end of the road.  From the article it seems that Rauschenberg wants to recognize the artist that paves out the road and re-lives everyday as if it is the end. Those are the people that create the best events and shows them off for the world to see.
