The Dematerialization of Everyday Life, 2015-2017, Filtergrams on analogue photo paper, unique pieces, sizes vary between 76 x 76 cm and 126,4 x 126,4 cm

This series of works consist out of unique pieces that have been developed in the darkroom. My aim is primarily to filter light through an object and to get both a reversal of the colors, as well as a dematerialization of the usual three-dimensional object. The materiality of the object is being wiped out and one wonders about the characteristics of the depicted.

In this way, a purified type of photography takes place that comes without camera and lenses and works only through light and shadow.
Any new attempt would lead to new results and so the works can not be repeated. This uniqueness is of a great importance for the series and also touches upon other characteristics of the medium of mechanical reproduction that photography is.

The selected objects are quite banal everyday objects (as plastic bag, tea bags, etc.), which become the character of unique aesthetic objects.
