Compact Life | Installation
2013 | Blooom Award Art Fair
“Cityscapes | Compact Life” was created between 2011 and 2013 and documents in images and sounds the fascination and life in Asia’s big cities from a perspective which is far away from the cookshops and the overcrowded streets.
The artist Timo Klein gained access to rooftops, balconies and blocks of flats in various Asian metropolises enabling him to discover awe-inspiring perspectives on the almost endless interweaving of the omnipresent blocks of flats. Two of the most impressive results are presented here in a two-sided light box. The photographs that were created by the artist, and the materials used – MDF wood, fluorescent tubes and acrylic glass – are consolidated artistically and the “Compact Life” is brought to life audibly with authentic street sounds played in the background.
