Marc Erwin Babej Yesterday – Tomorrow A Work in Aspective Realism

The Rebirth of Egyptian Art after 2,000 Years of Dormancy and Its Evolution in Photorealistic Media. 

An international team of more than 50 specialists was involved in the creation of "Yesterday - Tomorrow", among them 13 Egyptologists from institutions such as Brown University, Harvard University, the Sorbonne, University of British Columbia and American University in Cairo. This latest work by American-German photographic artist Marc Erwin Babej revives the complex visual language of ancient Egyptian art and evolves it in photorealistic media. In the process, he adapts defining characteristics of Egyptian art, such as aspective representation (the simultaneous representation of the human body from multiple perspectives), the canon of proportions and the integration of images, symbols and text. The result is a work that is at once timeless and contemporary. The new art style, termed Aspective Realism by Babej, is regarded by Egyptologists as the rebirth and evolution of ancient Egyptian art. The dedicated "Yesterday – Tomorrow" app, equipped with image recognition technology, provides additional “behind the images” content and enables exclusive access to the Augmented Reality component of this unique work.
