Michael Rohde fotografiert Räume von unten und was auf den ersten Blick fast banal erscheint, wird bei näherem Hinsehen immer wirrer und unwirklicher. Schöne Arbeit!
Trained on centralize perspectives, the eye struggles for orientation. The work series FROM BELOW by Michael H. Rohde does offer a vanishing point to clearly focus on. However, instead of providing a reasonable arrangement of the picture, it rather contributes to its destabilization. Rohde's utopian views of interior spaces keenly challenge our perception. The view of the room from below the floor, to be determined only by a mathematically logical concept of perception, at first appears to be easily comprehensible. But then it quickly withdraws itself into a self-contained aesthetic, dynamic in its own right and free of any structuring orientation system.
