Wave Fields / Point Patterns

English | Deutsch

Optical screen patterns and point patterns overlay with gradual changes (angular position, increase and decrease of sharpness). First “real,” programmed, serial works with visibly equidistant steps from image to image within generative photography. The beginning and the end of the series are determined through the technical conditions (hardware), for example, reaching the limits of the mechanical playroom through finding the extremes of the enlargement apparatus. Light graphic, B/W prints and unique pieces.
