Bonding - in between Digital Photo Art – Print on strong acrylic glass with metal back 100 x 150 cm

Statement

Motivation for designing the picture series Bonding: For a long time I amused myself by creating visual pattern motifs constructed from details from random snapshots I’ve taken. Not knowing in advance what possibilities lie in the limitations of using random snapshots can give me positive surprises along the way and inspire my own work process. By using random snapshots as a starting point for the creative process, the image motifs also get an authentic, undirected and rough feel, which in this context is considered as an aesthetic quality. for designing the picture series Bonding: For a long time I amused myself by creating visual pattern motifs constructed from details from random snapshots I’ve taken.

The image “BONDING – in between” is image no. 2 in a series of three different but related motifs: “BONDING – in”, “BONDING – in between”, and “BONDING – out”. The images’ visual motif consists of patterns constructed from detail from a snapshot from my own collection. The pictures can be printed in two sizes: 80×120 cm and 100×150 cm. The motif is printed on high-quality acrylic glass with an aluminum backing and integrated attachment for wall mounting. These motifs will be printed in a limited edition of a maximum of 25 copies per motif and size.
