#Metareally: History Vertigo

Materiality of Metareality

History Vertigo (4608x3072)

WWhat is Reality in Times of Digital? What is Material made from? Where is the bridge between digital and analog, between something you see on your screen and something you can touch.

In my series Metareally I explore the ways to merge these worlds. Actually, they are already combined, they were never separated. But now you have a proof.

Metareally Series consists of the following parts:

  • Digital work, photography as a media file
  • Description of this work, which is already the door between captured time and vivid insanity of the world.
  • Print of this photo, which you can hold in your hands, hang on your wall, or just contemplate the materiality of metareality.

History Vertigo

This is the first installment of Metareally. The genesis.

This photo was taken in IG-Farben Building. A building with a dark history. Firstly designed as an administrative building, it was used by IG-Farben Conglomerate (chemical industries, which produced Zyklon B for Nazi Camps). Later, after WWII it was the headquarter by US Army’s V Corps and CIA in Germany. In 2010ies it became a central Campus of Frankfurt University.

And the Sun keeps shining, whatever happens…

But we shall not forget the history.

The next episode in the series Metareally will be revealed after the current piece is collected.
