Post Bacc: Week Five: Herczeg & Kaehr

Joschi Herczeg & Daniele Kaehr
Photographs, 2010

Statement (Taken from website): Herczeg & Kaehr created the explosion effect by building custom-made detonators, which were connected to the cameras and synchronized to snap a photo at the very moment of the explosion. In this way, they were able to capture motion and time in a split second of an explosion. Their fascination lay in making order out of chaos and freezing an ephemeral creation; each image is like a chance sculpture – the artists themselves were uncertain of the shape, colour and size they would form. The explosions take place in a domestic setting to play upon feelings of anxiety and unrest.
