Daniel Pabst: SOUND|ARCHITECTURE (Ausschnitt)

[Daniel Pabst: SOUND|ARCHITECTURE (excerpt)]


-> artificiality, strict composition, isolation and in search of the own subjective perspective...

The formal language surrounds emotional and aesthetical permanence, using precision, reduction and minimalism for finding an absolute moment in architecture — where form finds perfect understanding and a compact cultural history. Photography is a suiting medium to develop these ambitions in terms of architecture. Such photos have more weight than those which try to capture a moving moment (which street photography does perfectly). This may sound pretentious which would be a misunderstanding. It's rather difficult not to put this topic into ‘heavy concrete foundations’, since the construction of a single building already results in a mass of processes. I exactly try to interact with this topic, to capture a formal understanding in an aesthetic way, suiting the object and finally making the topic lose some weight.
