Noel Kerns is a photographer i met recently over flickr. He’s a Dallas based photographer who captures Texas towns, abandoned spaces and towns he fantasizes with his pretty intensive use of different light sources at night. He usually does night shooting, which is pretty interesting once you combine the unseen with artificial colored light strobes. He captures the essence and beauty of shooting buildings under full moon, besides shooting at the interior of those buildings.

His scenes are mostly ghostly and deserted, and it seems that he’s most affectionate about the details revealed at night through the moonlight. He names this revelation of his imagination as “execution”. This execution recreates the seen vision through the control of the space.

As i’m severely interested in abandoned spaces for the past 2 months, and will be for another while since i’m doing my video shooting in such abandoned places in my city, i envied the environment he could cope up with and fruited his final works.

Below are several of mu personal favorites, better watch this man he’s fascinating. What’s actually more fascinating is that he explains how he processes his work under each and every work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Referring to the subject of “information graphics” in the past weeks -pictograms, iconography etc.- I came across the Slovakian artist Roman Ondák’s work as a “living infographic, a plotting of visitors’ heights whose mean will become increasingly apparent over the four months at the Temporary Stedelijk“.
Each participant is writing their names on the 4 walls, yet as there’s a mean where people’s heights could coincide, the names after some time started to overlap. At the end the wall typo became so dense that it looked like a huge black 4-edged linear black shape.

His statement is that the individuals in a society will, as a natural fact, will emerge and grow. And as they do, artist as the observer in that society will be revealing this emergence and other narrative contexts of the growth.

Another contemporary artist exhibited within the same museum, Barbara Kruger, is referring to another dimension of the individual, in more of a social and emotional manner. She uses massive typographical elements in a closed space of the museum. The installation is called Past/Present/Future.
