The project raises questions about memory, time and transience, and depicts the relationship between man, nature and architecture in a series of images created from experimentation and voyeurism.
The same concepts and methodology have also dictated the terms in the design process of the book. The book design reflects the photography and the architecture’s balance between the beautiful and the non-perfect, enhancing Mikael Olsson’s artistic intentions with the goal of defining the book as an independent work alongside Mathsson’s creations.
