Ripples from Movement
Motivation from the jury:
This almost abstract photographic series is characterized by a striking, minimalist composition. The traces of human behavior make the feet, that are seen from below, look like bacteria in petri dishes, – and like bacteria they multiply when they meet or touch each other, referencing the spreading of the current pandemic. The photo shopped technique gives the series a universal, clinical character, and an openness for interpretations. With its quadratic format the structure reminds us of a 6×6 slide, waiting to be developed. The sci-fi aesthetic reflects the establishment of a new normal of sharing space, pointing to the fear of walking in crowded spaces – or on glass high above.
