The concept of the same name ‘wabi-sabi’ (侘寂) forms the basis of this series. Some notable features of this Japanese aesthetic are: asymmetry, simplicity and intimacy. But ‘wabi-sabi’ is also a way of life in which – among other things – valuing the basics and accepting imperfection are central. For this series I mainly focus on these two elements, basal and imperfection.
A slide show of four continuously changing color circles are photographed in one single shot while moving the camera. Transforming the perfect geometric circles into imperfect shapes and uncontrollable compositions.
