“We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.” – H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu
Inspired by the writer H.P. Lovecraft, it was my goal to create enigmatic images that once again put the viewer in front of riddles. It seems impossible – if you don’t know the true origin of the motif – to create proportions. Some suspect satellite or aerial photographs of mines or barren landscapes, others suspect microscope images.
The solution is more profane: it is an octopus that was partially frozen in a large block of ice for a year. Parts of the animal’s skin were strongly changed by the long time at minus 25°C and were almost elephantine. The suction cups, partly still in the ice block, evoke the association with perforated soil structures.
