The work of Swiss artist FABIAN MARTI reflects the artist’s fascination not only for savage theories, but also for underground culture, music and technological debates. In this photograph, as well as in others of his works, FABIAN MARTI uses the same techniques: he hardly ever uses digital media, but works with analogue photography and with a scanner. The application of these media and particularly the darkening black effect of the left open scanner emphasise the materiality of the photography with dust spots. In some of the works, Marti uses the scanner directly as a camera by placing the objects to be portayed directly on its surface.
FABIAN MARTI studied photography at the Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst (University of Design and Art) in Zurich (2002-2007).
