Today we are celebrating the birthday of Robert #Rauschenberg "Moon Burn" is from the artist’s mixed-media Scale series executed from 1977 through 1981. Incorporating found materials and photographic transfers, it summarizes the diverse processes and themes that have engaged Rauschenberg throughout his career. The random images of nature, technology, art and commerce evoke the complexity of twentieth-century experience, a condition doubly reflected in a hanging mirrored panel with a row of dangling lights emphatically illuminating its multi-layered messages.
Rauschenberg's "Moon Burn" is in Cranbrook Art Museum's collection. [Robert Rauschenberg
