NEW MEXICAN TRAVELS

a photographic research into the vast expansive landscape of New Mexico, USA, 
made possible during a residency stay 
at Santa Fe Art Institute in March/April 2013.


While site-specific attempts were lingering in the back of my mind, 
recalling Nancy Holt, Robert Smithson and Bruce Nauman, 
I experienced a slow, but vast expansive landscape, 
full of contradictions and full of colonial and cultural clashes, that emptied my mind 
and my eyes from pre-conceptions, making me drive out into the unknown, 
while on stay. What I experienced was a mix of reservations, 
clinging to casino build resorts for income, 
the hispanic community living side by side of the old spanish settlers 
and their descendants, all reclaiming own territories and land, 
while some towns of the 60 ́s communities are driven 
to tourism and real estate sales. 
New Mexico is the state of the first atomic bomb explosion 
and of dry high altitude with mountains, 
valleys and resorts. Being on my own, I enjoyed a photographic research, 
that can be called an artists journey, discovering a vast expansive landscape.

installation - research - painting - edition - model - book



While questions of intellectual property and the era of financial crisis melt 
with strategies of survival, a recent research is based on one photographic series, 
shot by the  Mars robot "Spirit", whose panoramic and fragmented images 
show empty and stony landscapes, sometimes in true color, sometimes 
in false colour and sometimes in 3-D in low- and high resolution 
(bridging an up to 320 Million km distance of data transmission). 
The records distributed by NASA question intellectual property, identity, 
science and narrativity in current global crisis of climate and finance. 
They open a new challenge of perception and abstraction, 
referencing Robert Smithson`s research of (mythical) landscape, 
fiction and industrial / archival spaces of the 60's. 

The project researches long distance data transmission of images. 

One Edition of 20 images of this research is printed 
as digital high resolution print 63 x 112 cm, 
and as BOOK, 84 pages, 51 photos, hardcover, limited edition.

NY 92 / 12

Book  hardcover / limited edition of 25 / signed
price: 120 € / including  VAT / Mwst / plus costs for shipping
78 pages, 100 photos, size:  21,59 x 27,94 cm /  8 1/2 " x 11" 

NY 92 / 12

A photographic book about the LOWER EAST SIDE in 1992. 

Its almost 100 b/w silverchrome prints, show a (nearly) abandoned area of post punk time. 
The LES has become today a gentrified place of high income households, 
galleries and of media events. The photos don´t want to get sentimental 
about the pre - 9/11 time, but want to show a documentary vanishing mood, 
how life changes without a beatitude attitude. 
No text has been added, 
to let the photos and the moments encountered speak for themselves.
