Anderswelten - Reichstag Berlin
DESCRIPTIONIn the photographic work "Anderswelten" I would like to approach architectural photography in a completely different way, by removing reality from its logical associations and shifting it.
I do not look at the buildings as a whole, but photograph specific details of different architectures. Often, even with houses, the beauty is found in the detail and not in the whole. A reality dissected into its smallest parts, scooped from the fragments of architecture, is reassembled.
The alienated pictorial realities are created by fragmented surfaces and details, which are put together like a puzzle in a permanent repetition, mirroring and juxtaposition. The result is a pictorial reality that converges in perspective from different directions. It is a game between the errors and confusions against the space-time reality.
Because of the assembly and collage of the similar motifs, the meticulous zooming in, fragmenting and reassembling the reality, a cosmos of new image worlds and a completely different and new view of our architecture emerges.
