I’m interested in the place between reality and the abnormal or imaginary world. I enjoy changing the atmosphere of that which surrounds us in order to highlight our position in a moment in connection with the environment, objects and people. The structure of cities is the first thing I notice in order to find the traces of the ignored, that which is inaccessible in my daily life and to see the dependency on these things in different places.
An investigation of the intensity of light working on an optical limit of an eyes’ perception is my subject of interest. A microscopic elements found in urban life which cannot be perceived by naked eye (need scientific tools to observe this phenomenon) becomes the focal point of my experimentation in Urban Microscope.
The movement of light particles, the incident of a reflection, I consider this a respiration, a breath of light. This phenomena can be perceived by the dust particles , gaz, vaporization of water,…ect. This perception results in a distortion of color saturation in the eyes .The environment in a real situation is not the same as that which is captured by eyes. The color saturation changes in the environment makes objects appear different from the original as if the place itself were shifting.
This series of photos capturing a real situation, was only witness to an outstanding time and space. I tried to show the constitution of space over a time break in an attempt to reveal things that were hidden. My intention is to capture a kind of light-thinning to make visible these energy waves and reveal the small particles barely visible to the naked eye, like air temperature.
The camera makes it possible to halt movement, change the color or saturate the space to show ‘’ things that come from nothing ”
