Landschaftsbilder / Pictures of Landscapes

Installation, petri dishes and framed photographs, 2007

Invisible at the first day, an image grows into blooms of yellow and green until it dies of drying, if it couldn´t manage to escape.

 

Sterile nutritive substances in petri dishes were exposed to specific atmospheres, in order to portrait different invisible landscapes. Bacteria and Mold are, while invisible, precise properties of a certain site.
After exposure, these portraits grew over two weeks while exhibited.

 

What is nature? Romantic lakes, mountains, woods, or simply a process.
Uncontrollable and without human influence, nature happens in the woods, in hospitals at our homes.

The photographs show the places where i received these two landscapes - In the woods on Kahlenberg and in a Viennese subway station.
