The vertical plane (Robert Rauschenberg)

Rauschenberg combines integrated aspects of sculpture and painting to become an entirely new artistic category. The way that his works were composed and laid out challenged the traditional concept of  the picture plane, which results in transforming the viewers into another dimension of reality. 

Personally I was interested in the objects he chose to display as well. This seemed like he juxtaposed ready made objects with objects that he created into this mixture that balances well in my opinion. The process of making the sculpture/painting seems very simple as it just looks like a 3D object is just placed onto a flat plane however the effect is powerful.
