I mapping space
on this site art works of my ongoing project mapping space. my photo works are about geography or biography of landscape; 'time and place', 'rise and fall' in spatial structures are central themes.
the works relate to dialectics in construction and destruction within both culture and nature.
being also a human geographer i see the world as a façade; am foremost interested in the relationship between public and private space, in the beyonds of the photo souvenirs of details of the world:
#1 research on the image grammar of public space/landscape
#2 studies on color structures in public space; preliminary works on cartographics
#3 abstract works on landscape; studies on archetypes in culture and nature
all works on this site are photo works I inkjet print on fine art baryta paper, dibond, plexiglas Diasec® I limited edition of a work or series: 5
