Homes

2005-2006 | C-Print

Presented in the form of a photographic installation, Homes is a circumstantial investigation of a council block in Berlin. On the right hand side of the installation, the viewer finds an architectural image shot at dusk when the balance between artificial and daylight creates a theatrical and very suggestive scene. On the left hand side, one finds 38 images of small dimension, which reveal instances of everyday lives stolen from windows of the same council block. The juxtaposition of the formal quality of the first image with the mundaneness and the granular detailed appearance of the latter images, emphasises the intersection between artifice and everyday life.
