color location ultimate experience



Still from a performance by A.L. Steiner + robbinschilds; the videos are choreographed patterns, crafted through the use of carefully timed jump cuts that divide the piece into discrete, color-coded sections. In C.L.U.E., robbinschilds is costumed in rainbow hues as they perform a series of choreographed duets to a score by Kinski.

Karl Blossfeldt











All images from Karl Blossfeldt's masterwork, Urformen der Kunst (Art Forms in Nature).
Self-taught in photography, he devoted himself to the study of nature, photographing nothing but flowers, buds and seed capsules for thirty-five years. He once said, "The plant never lapses into mere arid functionalism; it fashions and shapes according to logic and suitability, and with its primeval force compels everything to attain the highest artistic form."
