I really like the aesthetic and conceptual sides to this project by Florian Bong-kil Grosse. Conceptually Florian visually documented the awkward robotic movements of a blind person being given directions from a distance. Aesthetically I love the way Florian composed these shots within a very geometric and minimal environment – as well as their high-contrasty and grainy feel.
This goes a bit further than the usual monochrome photography we post on Monday, wouldn’t you say?
I really like how unique and conceptual Alexandra’s images are, her creations sit perfectly on that fine line between purely aesthetic and thought-provoking.
Mat blends beautiful acrylic and spray paint colors together to create these abstract shapes. He describes the process people should go through while seeing his work, and as with many abstract artworks that’s exactly what I went through. At first I stayed mesmerized by the pure aesthetics of these pieces, and then I began to associate shapes with meanings and accord more than aesthetic importance to each piece.
This is Mat’s objective, as he states :
With the artist’s attempt to express something meaningless, the viewer is allowed to have an active viewing experience in which the meaning is left up to their own interpretation.
