Hello Grandpa! Visual reaction to Grandpa´s pragmatic questions about the world.
This mixed media project reacts both visually and theoretically to philosophical and scientific questions about the world, sky, universe, and modern technologies, the topics I have often discussed with my Grandpa. The theoretical part (author book) is written in form of a letter to him and citations, searches for answers in art theory and philosophy. The practical part is then a visual guide and a complement to the explanations outlined. All in symbolical way, one year after his dead, for myself and for the viewers.
Project consists of:
Collage of colour photograms / 170×125 cm, random collage of photograms (each 10×15 cm) of glass stones that my Grandpa put in a concrete curb around a flowerbad in our garden years ago, describing the universe; C print photography / 100×70 cm, ground plan model of my Granpa´s garden, describing the world and its center that comes from our homes; Photo object / 100×70 cm, about sky; Ipad in wooden frame / 30×24 cm, live broadcast from a camera placed in the garden, sky view, describing the modern technologies; Author book / A3, theoretical part.
