A World of Immaterial Objects

The project delves into visual perception, objecthood, materiality, and their societal value.

The objects captured in the photographs stand prominently illuminated by the midday sun, devoid of life and human presence. They attract attention because of their potential appearance in their immaterial state, as well as their role in ontological, artistic, and semantic discussions regarding existence.

The texture, shape, form, color, and symmetry of these objects on the surface, along with their exchange value, utility, and functionality, all become subjects of fascination. Through deliberate choices in framing, perspective, and manipulation of color, significant information is intentionally omitted. This omission raises questions about the objects’ location, identity, and purpose. Could it be that they are sensory versions of material things existing in a photorealistic yet unreal world?

The photographed found object, subjected to conditions of versioning, transforms into a flexible post-readymade product, open to a plethora of interpretations and representations. Its appearance and significance are deeply influenced by historical, ontological, and semantic contexts, shaped by the cultural and perceptual dynamics inherent in subject-object-viewer encounters.
