Andreas Gefeller - The Japan Series

The series’ focus lies on the Poles. Gefeller photographs electricity posts in at least two single upward views from a perpendicular position. In the subsequent digital assemblage the pole disappears and innummerable cables and current transformers are converted into an autonomous and abstract composition that spreads in front of a monochrome background. The absence of points of reference and orientation opens up a new perspective on familiar situations. Thus, the Poles transcend their original context in order to awaken associations of underground railway plans, autoroute intersections or night photographs of a city’s pulsating traffic arteries.
