OSTRANENIE [Ah-strah-nuh-nee]
The technique of presenting common things in an unfamiliar way, in order to enhance the perception of the familiar.

Erik Linton, is a one of a kind artist. He uses ostranenie to make ordinary things extraordinary. Seeing his art provides a new perspective on the world around us.

Erik Linton was born and raised along the Wasatch front, in Utah. His artwork was largely influenced by the mountains near his home. One of his missions as an artist is to help people see things that surround them in different ways. Tree prints provide a unique and extraordinary look into a micro and macro world. Erik gathers wood from fallen trees and tells their story in print–art prints.  Erik lives in Hyrum, Utah, with his wife and children. See more of his work here.

I had the opportunity to direct, shoot and edit this video for Stiry.
