An Imagined State in Which Everything is Perfect
An object is balanced, stationary in the air, suspended no other movement is allowed. There is only one state that the object may become perfect, there is only one state that creates balance. These minimalist and de-contextualised objects attempt to create an illusion. The object is transformed into a metaphorical subject the black space behind it, unknown. Through the photographic process the 'thingness' of the paper is celebrated, as if to defy the immateriality of the digital revolution. As technology is advancing at the speed, it might be worth to pause for a moment to address this chasm. These allegorical images counter the constricted freedom of thought in an overly bureaucratic society, controlled by seemingly invisible, economic and political forces.
