That light event was observed, felt and captured after I visited a museum, the museum Lothar Fischer in Neumarkt i.d.OPf. I went with a friend and fellow star of the anaLoge. Not knowing the work of the sculptor Lothar Fischer, I first took it as the cultural foreplay before watching the EURO 2020 game between Portugal and Germany in the evening. It became much more of that.
The visit sparked thoughts and lively discussions, e.g. on the longevity of the artifact of the different artistic media (sculpture vs. print): What does the sculptor think about that? How do we photographers deal with the longevity of our prints? And how does the artist take into account that society will change and hence the perception of the work will change? What seemed to be vernacular may be seen as art. What was seen as provocative art might become a picture of the obvious leading to nothing but boredom in the viewer.
Of course the artist knows about that when she works on the artpiece - so how long does the artist want the work to last? We’ve seen artwork that keeps disintegrating and vanishing, where that process is part of the concept. Do we really think about that making our prints? Interesting questions we at least touched on that day.
When we stepped out, light had changed and kissed the building the way you see on the picture. We called it an inspiring day.
