through a collaged mix of architectural elements, photography and landscape imagery, designer matthias jung dreams up his ‘surreal houses’ series, comprising colorful and whimsical residences, apartments and skyscrapers. structural styles are combined together to form eclectic panoramas of homes within sprawling natural settings — ‘kurhaus ost’ depicts a fragmented, brutalist-style construction cut and pasted together, stilted on a series of long support poles; ‘abendland’ is a multi-level building that floats a stained-glass window in the air like a giant balloon; ‘expedition zum ostpol’ hovers above the surface of the earth with a monumental, semi-circular wheel as its base. the collection of imagery brings the viewer to an imaginary place of fiction and fantasy, where the structurally impossible and ordinary is turned into a bizarre and charming surreal space.
