Maintenance (07050005)

  1. This comes across very much as I remember first seeing ‘modern’ art as a child: some lines, some angles and the odd object here and there. But those pictures would have been in colour.

    That the nature of the place and the activity going on can be inferred from a black and white ‘abstract’ appeals.

  2. …and I hadn’t noticed the title!

  3. Is it a permanent or temporary installation?

    • Permanent enough that it is down for maintenance, if that makes sense.

  4. Thanks for the video link. You don’t get the scale from your other pictures of this.

    As to this image: I think it plays nicely along the ambiguity line. Everything is understandable, but everything makes the viewer (when said viewer is me) work a little for their understanding.

  5. Following on from Colin, I do like photographs that make me have to work and then reward me with doing so. Without title and video I’m thinking crime scene. A little too crisp for Weegee. The face mask really gives the other objects some base.

  6. The face mask turns it from a minimalist 2D image into a multiplicity of possible stories.

  7. simple, minimal. Textures given some interest with face mask, wood and tape.
