Jörg Gläscher, Waves -series
Between November 2020 and March 2021, German photographer and artist Jörg Gläscher, isolated himself to a location near Hamburg, where he crafted nine different wave-like deadwood structures that blend beautifully into the forest scenery.
“A wave is a periodic oscillation or a unique disturbance the state of a system. I was working with the idea of the pure power of nature, the all-destroying force, which brings one of the richest countries in the world to a completely still stand.” I love how he described the idea behind and the beginning of this mesmerizing visual adventure in the fall of 2020 – The fear of the second wave of COVID-19 was going through Germany (and the whole of Europe) so the artist decided to create this project which reflects his own worry and emotions.
Each of these massive installations, the largest being four meters high and nine meters wide, was photographed and then dismantled by the artist to reuse the materials. I was blown away by these images and I can only imagine how powerful these installations were in real life.
