These are all over Sternschanze / Feldstrasse right now. They remind me of a Picasso style paste up that that i saw around Rote Flora a couple of summers ago. That was an isolated one off piece – at least i don’t recall seeing others, but it really stuck with me. Along with other examples like the above, there was also the following:
The style makes me think of the Austin Osman Spare’s automatic drawings, but more minimal. The fine lines in the one above flow perfectly, must be wonderful to feel them come out onto paper!
This seemed pretty obvious to me… but nobody else saw what i expected!
Edit: and here is the video version:
More adverts for the void…
No idea why these advertising light boxes are the way that they are, but they are each end of the S-Bahn platforms at Hamburg Airport. Having walked past them, and occasionally taken the odd digicrap of them, here they are on film. In this case Kodak Portra 800 in the Natura Black.
It turns out that blue lights in a dimly lit underground station are about at close to a torture test as you can get for fast colour negative film. The obviously different light levels really didn’t help with a point and shoot. All of which made them an adventure to process – the white balance still isn’t consistent, but i give up!
Mystery why there are they and never contain any advertising… all other slots are always occupied, with these left open. Maybe they are a token gesture towards making the airport more relaxing / less commercial… or art? Ha!
Look what turned up in the post this week, right after me posting about it a few days ago.
