"Unorte" Fascination of Lost Places
The piece „Unorte“ portrays abandoned architectures. Lost Places that tell countless stories of times long past, but have nevertheless vanished from the collective mind. Nowadays they represent antipoles to much frequented centres of our fast moving society and display prospects with a particular kind of morbid aesthetics. Time marked these places and in their perishing they not only show their own decay, but also reveal the finiteness of every man-made structure and eventually of mankind itself. The book combines excerpts from dystopian literature with photographs of lost places and therefore provides a new perspective for both. Furthermore, smaller formated interpages show personal impressions and adventures during the explorations of the ghost sites.
