Unspecified Space


A drawn object stands in front of an architecture- or landscape-like background. These elements return on every page, but in contrast to the static object the background color changes from page to page. The contrast between motion and motionlessness generates a space that seems unaffected by any changes. Since the object looks like a four-legged television a certain irony is perceivable in the images: the television that usually transforms us to passive consumers of the world affairs, is here itself transformed to the spectator.

Untitled


Otto D. Handschuh is studying properties of form and material by constant repetition of a single working step. This procedure is also elucidated in his book. On 120 pages black circles are depicted in the same pattern. Handschuh has drawn over and over again the same circles. But instead of monotony the spectator can experience that repetition gives rise to a certain richness and diversity.
