I am very happy to announce that the series "Space Over Time" is now availabe as Fine Art Prints.

The works are printed on CANSON Infinity Platin Fiber Rag 310 g/m² and mounted on a aluminium backing. The printing service is fullfilled by one of the best fine art printing companies, guaranteeing top notch quality. 

It all began two years ago with this first shot:

This art project started three years ago on a flea market. I was in New York City and had some time before my flight back to Berlin. So I visited a flea market in Greenwich Village, where I bought "The Great 'Life' Photographers". A few months later I was in Austria and had the book with me. One of the great photographers in the book is George Silk. He took photos at U.S. Olympic tryouts in Palo Alto, Calif. back in 1960 - with a strip camera, a technology now better known as slit-scan photography. He was fascinated by the technology and carried the camera back home where he took some halloween photos of his kids. Fascinated by George Silk's story, the photos he took and most of all by the slit-scan technology I immidiately began with first experimental shots on the kitchen  table with a turning eggcup. I was thrilled by the possibilities of this technology - making visible how space (a moving object) changes over a period of time. It took a while until I got the first "good" shot - developing my own suitable turntable with electronic control and the appropriate software tools to handle the huge amount of data were the most important steps.

Basically you observe a very small segment of space of a moving object and take thousands and thousands of photos, which then are merged together into one single image. The name of the series is "Space over Time" because with the sclit-scan technology you can see how the observed space develops/changes over time.

In this gallery you find some of the works available as fine art prints:

The objects in the gallery are avocados, tomatoes, bananas, melons, basils, torches, water bottles, pineapples and many more. Depending on where you place the camera in relation to the object you get different but always fascinating structures.
