Cibachrome - Tableau

Im Felsenmeer (Chaos of Rocks)

This work is a color composition consisting of 35 Cibachrome photos (30 cm x 40 cm each). In the darkroom, I exposed the individual photos to different intensities of light, experimented with color filters and purposely made “mistakes” in the exposure to create patches of bright light fading into murky, almost imperceptible depths. The bodily movements shown are: crouching, lying, floating, climbing, falling, turning, standing. The shapes of the stones suggest the contours of the body, bringing up associations with life and death.
