Publisher's Description
A collaboration between sculptor Olaf Nicolai and photographer Heidi Specker,
this artist book poetically captures Nicolai s intervention during the reconstruction
of the Bauhaus Masters Houses once home to Moholy-Nagy, Kandinsky and Klee,
among others in Dessau. Coating the walls with marble dust with varying
degrees of granulation to create geometrical patterns, Nicolai produced a subtle
relief that responds to the homes changing light conditions. Specker in turn
gives the camouflaged surfaces a heightened sense of presence through her
photographic renderings that direct the viewer s gaze to the interplay of contour,
surface, space and light. In Nicolai and Specker s joint publication, an aesthetic
intervention in a reconstructed space finds another iteration through the medium
of photography in book form. The soft cover and Chinese fold give this elegant
artist book and abstract journey through an iconic space a supple, organic feel.
