Berlin Textures, 2008–09
In an act of collecting fragments, of recording symbols inscribed onto the media of the city, the series Berlin Textures represents a practice of looking, meandering and attending to detail. The selected medium of the work, the Polaroid photograph, is at once a symbolic and physical artifact of a singular moment. Its haptic quality reflects the subject matter: the multitudinous artificial textures of the city. The transience of architecture, and the signs laminated onto it (formally or informally), are arrested and contained in the physical medium.
