Model Studies - Koto-Ku.

Photographs by Thomas Demand.
Amana, Japan, 2015. In Japanese/English. 88 pp., 11x12¾x¾".

Publisher's Description

Using archival photography and footage, Thomas Demand builds models that recreate historical and social events and then photographs and films them. Then, he presents them on large prints and screens, as if offering a firsthand account of the event.

Model Studies (2011) was his first work in which he did not build the models himself. This freed him to place more emphasis on the models and express his belief that the models are just as important to him as his images.
Demand has returned with a follow-up series, Model Studies (K?t?-ku). In this work, he photographed models built by the architectural team SANAA.

Demand photographs architectural models as sculptures that represent ideas and, by doing so, emphasizes the beautiful ephemerality of ideas themselves-how they are often sparked to life only to be discarded. This photobook represents Demand's finest work in his pursuit of the rich possibilities contained in models.
