Catastrophe (series)

The Big Prints series is a set of digital C-prints all sized 4000 x 2500 pixels. They are not limited, because I don’t believe in artificially increasing the value of my art by shorten its supply. They are also not fixed in printing size, so if people like them, they will get a copy witch fits their needs and tastes. The Series deals with deconstruction in general and the modern urbanized media world we live in with its symbols, codes and signs in particular.

“Catastrophe (Multicolor, Smell-O-Rama)” depicts catastrophes as we witness them in our mass media news every day: clean, distant and somewhat morbidly beautiful. They deal with subjects like natural catastrophe, terrorism, accidents and technological illusions of perfection vs. the raw forces of nature in general.
