A portrait by Rone in an abandoned home.

Take a Ghostly Virtual Tour of This Installation in an Abandoned Home

A few weeks ago, Australian artist Rone began unveiling his new works, a series of portraits painted in different rooms of an abandoned home. As usual, the images resemble a relief, popping from their natural background via the shades and tints of the wall itself. He fully utilizes the textures and colors of the surfaces, and the interiors make the series pop with a range of styles that the full rooms embellish even further. With matching decor, they pull the portraits off the wall so they occupy the whole space.

The fact that the home is empty and decaying adds another level of mood and atmosphere. Layers of texture have been built up over time, while a family’s most personal spaces remain intimate. Leaves fill one room, light pours in through the cracks in the wall of another. Color schemes match throughout, with a silent table painted the same dull mint green as the wall Rone now covers with a ghostly face.

With this space acting as its own powerful character, Rone goes beyond capturing it with powerful photos and has created a 3D rendition of the whole apartment. Viewers can virtually explore the space and take it in fully. Viewable on your browser, it allows passage through the different rooms with the arrow keys, and offers looks at each piece from different angles and frames, such as through a door or from the end of a hallway. It’s a bit like a PC video game, minus the guns and role playing.

Graffiti and street art are most definitely best viewed in person, but this is a great next best option for experiencing such a sight-specific piece. It’s also very ambitious in its completeness.

Take the virtual tour through SCANN3D and view the individual works on Rone’s Instagram. Some screen grabs and selects are below.
