Wolfgang Zurborn
Catch


The curiosity to experience, the search for communication, to long for images that tear us out of the routine consumption of normal media image clutter: images with irritating cutouts, surprising compositions and unusual perspectives. Such an irritation is necessary to reflect upon what we encounter in everyday life. A more mysterious way of seeing evokes questioning of how to look and thus penetrate further into the various layers of the visible. The world as a collage will not dissolve in a unique punch line but rather expand itself in disparity. Space between things is very important. It leaves us room for imagination. The images themselves become catalysts to the experience diverse perception. They extend the visions for the discovery of the seemingly trivial—–Catch!
