‘x-rayed’ is a series of images in one of my conceptual photography projects.
For me, photography and image processing is always to some extent ‘ready-made’ due to the given (programmed) technical possibilities:
Designed to create an image of something under the rules of (programmed) technology.
Photography can only create something really new if the photographer acknowledges this limitation by technology and searches for something new, something to be created in the meaning of the images.
The subject can often be replaced, since the message of an image results from much more than just the subject.
This is also the case for this project, x-rayed – although I have purposely chosen stones as the subject of the series of images. read more
We live in a time in which human interaction seems to become more and more superficial.
The individual takes up more and more space in his or her own cosmos, leaving a smaller and smaller space for fellow human beings, society and the ‘big picture’.
Mindfulness-for the moment, for our surroundings, for our fellow human beings, perhaps even for the meaning of our existence-is an antidote to this trend.
And mindfulness can happen in every moment. Without any preparation anyone can immediately become mindful for the moment.
The more mindful you are, the closer your connection to things and people is. And the closer this connection becomes, the more you understand things and people.
Until, at some point, you have the feeling of being able to see through the facade, into the heart and soul of things and people.
‘Mindfulness is a necessary counter-movement to modern Egocentricity’.
To connect with a stone, to look behind its facade, sounds impossible – maybe even ridiculous.
That is why stones are the ideal motif for this project: they express that mindfulness is not something that happens by itself or is simple.
Being mindful requires practice. Being mindful in every moment requires constant practice.
Once you have made the arduous beginning, mindfulness can be a constant, something lasting and enriching experience in your own life, changing your view of the stones on our path.
The beauty of mother nature, its inspiration and its spiritual energy are something I am deeply touched by and something very important to me – that’ s why I want to create a permanent presence with my artwork.
Express yourself, your personality, your values, your roots and maybe even your spirituality through images in your rooms.Or give the gift of art to someone beloved – maybe this image suits one of your loved ones perfectly. Art enhances a room, transforms it, can become an inspiring part of it and make you feel at home in it.
You can buy this image on different market places – so you don’t have to commit yourself to one market place.
Since I believe that art should be affordable for everyone, you can get my images not only as a limited artist edition, but also as (cheaper) print and as a free version (see below). Artist edition and prints are characterized by a permanently high quality: bright colors, which will definitely not bleach out but keep their expressiveness for decades.
Sustainability is, besides quality, extremely important. That’s why the limited artist edition is printed on Agave paper. Agave is, unlike cotton which is usually used for art prints, fast growing and sustainable in its cultivation. Of course, Agave prints are not distinguishable from prints on conventional paper – they are simply more environmentally friendly 😉
Get something for your home that fits to you, that inspires you, that you simply enjoy. Or make a loved one happy and order this image in one of the following marketplaces:
PS: Art is an investment for you as well? Or are you interested in tomorrow’s technologies and how they can be used in art?
Then simply bid for the digital asset belonging to this artwork in the blockchain! This digital asset is encoded as digital currency (ethereum), i.e. there is only one of it. Furthermore, as an ethereum asset it has all the characteristics of a digital currency and can be sold or given away by you again.
Of course I do my best to protect the value of your investment: future images or digital assets will never be offered by me below the value of previous images or assets.
