The work-in-progress series Urban
Elements is concerned with objects that constitute our everyday urban
environment. Employing minimalist graphic elements, the images are
processed in the style of architectural sketches and present the
elements isolated of their surroundings, thereby laying full attention
to the respective object and its individual appearance and geometry. The
aim of using this particular style is to point out the contrast between
the planned and clear lines of the building's architecture and the
individual character the object acquired through time by its exposure to
the urban sphere. Dirt, decay, but also transformation in the form of
street art characterise the objects of this series and lend them
It is this tension between clear geometry and imperfection that Urban Elements is devoted to.
