Love Me For Less
„Love Me For Less” is my most insightful contribution of a visual abstraction to the narrative of the unbearable weight of being human in the anthropocene — a topic that has always been fascinating to me. In what I believe to be an extensive, topographic study of the tactile, I wanted to present something distinctive, unnerving if you will, a unique experience that can be shared. In multifaceted arrays of structure and light, I compose for the surreal and yet mundane — opting for disorientation, mimicking an out-of-body experience (OBE). The so-called OBE and the science surrounding it have been a steady pillar in my research, leading me on to creating this body of work over the course of the last three years, forming its roots already in 2020 after finding inspiration for it in a car crash that I have been involved in prior and that I have been fortunate enough to walk away from.
In a sterile, almost clinical fashion, concentrated on the manifestation of abstract interactions between humans and their respective environments to an extent that tries to emphasize the strict inner lining within what makes up the human mind with all its boundaries — only to try and surpass said boundaries in the hereby body of work presented. A disturbing beauty that quickly fades, revealing a certain set of layers — subjective to whoever is courageous enough to take the plunge.
The question that guided me, driven by my interest in the phenomena of out-of-body experiences, has always been steady throughout my process: What really lies beneath our own consciousness and the structural array of chaos hidden within? „Love Me For Less” is therefore not so much about escapism but the fictional consensus of blending societies together by the strict differentiation of what is physical matter and what is not.
