The photo series Performing Grounds deals with the dynamically visual and accidental remains of human interventions in the public and private space. I put the untold stories in the formal frame of the picture and give them a melancholy value. In the center it is not man as person, but the place with the omnipresence of the civilization and her remains.
The activities and actions of humans always leave tracks as signals of a presence in the space. The visual impressions show the duality of the present, tense and absence, a dichotomy which questions human reality. In this manner the photos want to give no answer, but put the proof of this reflection about our existence.
