John Clang – Raum und Zeit spielen keine Rolle

Jeder hat schnon einmal diesen Moment oder Wunsch gehabt, er müsse jetzt auf der Stelle hier weg. Einfach woanders hin, nur weg von dem Stress und dem nervigen Alltag hier. Einfach nur wo es ruhig ist. Wenn es nur so einfach wäre wie es bei Clangs künstlerischen Fotoprojekt aussieht.

01 in John Clang - Raum und Zeit spielen keine Rolle

In seine Fotoprojekten spielt Raum und Zeit keine Rolle. In seiner Serie ‘Time’ zeigt er zum Beispiel immer die gleiche Szenerie, nur eben zeitlich versetzt! Das Verstreichen von Zeit wird nur durch die Menschen, die sich in ihr bewegen sichtbar.

‘A series that involves recording a location, to show the passing of time in a montage style. There is a sense of intimate intricacy of how time moves, and how people, albeit in a different time, are actually closer to one another and traveling in the same shared space. I’ve always been intrigued by the constant subtle changes in my urban environment. Every subtle shift affects my feelings and thoughts, hence my images respond acutely as a poetic reflection of myself in this environment. Working on this series, I explore how time moves in this seemingly static urban space. The people become the moving energy flowing through this space, marking the changes, forming the time.

These images also explore my fascination that there are probably many time dimensions in this universe. We may have a ‘life’ that exists similarly on a different path, one minute before or after the one we’re living now. We merely just exist in this current dimension, and sometimes when time paths collide, we have déjà vu experience.’

 

Microscopic Worlds – Life that we don’t see

Microscopic Worlds – Life that we don’t see from Daniel Stoupin on Vimeo.

A movie about microscopic life showing some of the freshwater microscopic fauna under high magnifications.

We are surrounded with various living creatures, but how often do we notice the tiniest ones and how small can they be? Such common but inconspicuous organisms like water fleas, seed shrimps, and hydras are less than a centimeter (0.4 inches) in size but they are very important components of the freshwater ecosystems.

The vast majority of organisms are even smaller and they are completely invisible with naked eyes. Using sophisticated optic systems I am bringing even the smallest animals before your eyes; they can be magnificent and scary, fast-moving or hiding; most of them look nothing like animals we see every day…
