The series “Ether” by the Swiss photographer Matthieu Gafsou makes highly aesthetic structures of human existence visible in the sky. It makes civilization photographically visible in the sky and show how we have colonized what’s above us. The resulting fine lines and delicate shapes seem to underlie unitary principles and appear as a higher-order structure that is reminiscent of the shape of nature.
The captured and seemingly structured phenomena reminiscent of chemical compounds, scientific classification systems, physical laws – the poetic structure of the world.
This project is the prologue of an ongoing series questioning limits of science and it’s philosophical consequences through the enhancement of human bodies.
