LOOKING AT THE WORLD TROUGH LEGS
CHAYCKH AL AHMAR (THE RED ARTIST)
Intention How to our focus and orientation inside a space change by a simple reversal of the main spatial axis? and how does the physical law of gravity effect our perception of space? the starting point for this project was our fascination with a reversal of -----“HeavenandeartH“/“upanddoWn“ ----- and its resulting phenomena. once we drop the given law of standing upright we begin to look at the world differently. We can easily perceive if the body is light or heavy within its environment. also the relationship of space and body comes into focus: is the body attracted or repelled by the space? does it merge with the structure of the space or does it stands out? Within alternative approaches we are questioning the traditional roles of the photographer and their subject. from this we developed a kind of game, a permanent role change between the photographer and subject and their relative perspectives. (as a subject) we change our perception of space within the chosen body posture. this in turn inspires a new way of looking into the space through the camera. there is an approximation of the subject (body in the frame) to the observer (body outside of the frame).
