Timo Stammberger – Underground Landscapes

Timo Stammberger - Underground Landscapes

“Inspired by my past involvements within the worldwide graffiti subculture, my work revolves around relationships of fear and uncertainty as well as commitment and passion. (..) Due to my artistic past, I have cultivated a special relationship with underground transit systems and the urban anatomy of contemporary cities. Today, for me, these places represent the challenge of leaving ones confined everyday comfort zones, furthermore exploring euphoria and depression in unison.

‘Underground Landscapes’ depicts subway tunnels of cities such as Berlin, New York, Philadelphia, Lisbon, Stockholm, Dortmund, Prague, Budapest and Vienna.” – Timo Stammberger

Carolyn Drake - Paradise Rivers

Maybe Carolyn Drake’s images of her travels to the former republics of the Soviet Union have a little bit too much of everything. But is it a crime, to be unable to resist the beauty of color, light and motion?

Naomi Leshem - Sleepers

“The meaning of sleep in culture is always about a state between life and death, between consciousness and being away. I liked the contradiction between the liveliness, tranquility and vulnerability. – In combination with the state of being in-between boy and man, girl and woman. ” – Naomi Leshem

“My work explores the relationship between nature and culture. In my artistic work I aim to study the methods, theories and concepts through which we approach nature in art and in science. As an artist I am attracted by the idea that when I am working in a rain forest I am a ‘visual researcher’.” – Sanna Kannisto

Oliver Dignal - Tuck

Oliver Dignal’s series “Tuck” shows facades of building with large temporary coverings in large German cities like Berlin, Frankfurt or Munich. The play of true and false in the ever-changing cityscape opens questions about the appearance and reality of our cities.

Friday Quote: Dylan Thomas

Posted by (PF) at 7:00 ...

Do not go gentle into that good night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Dylan Thomas, 1914 – 1953
