#2 ‘merihaka’ 2009. digital c-print, 60 x 60 cm
the photography work of italian visual artist and architect serraglia (b. 1979)
aims to criticize environments, make people wonder, to make people ask questions,
and to inspire a search for meaning by showing alternative view points of the world.
his most recent project entitled ‘mute spaces’ is a series of digitally altered photographs
of architecture in helsinki that invite the viewer to question what is real and what is digital.
this medium ground between the two is a place where the viewer is invited to perceive the
city in a new way and can notice things they had not before.
circa 1965, brian coe did a form study of typography to see how much one could remove
from a letter and still have it appear legible to a reader. expanding this approach to the
three dimensional nature of our built world – the idea behind these photos is just how much
detail can be removed without losing a sense of photo-realism.
