A Brief History of Scaffolding
2020 – (ongoing)

C-prints, each 48 × 48 cm

In this photo series the basic structure of the depicted object and the camera’s vantage point always remains the same. Each object in the photograph shows its peculiarities, allowing them to be seen as found sculptural situations. A single scaffolding foot is in some ways the smallest structural unit of the modern real estate economy, a temporary and modular element that appears and disappears in every modern city as quickly and inconspicuously as the movement of capital that assembles the scaffolding in the first place.
