This field is dedicated to tracking down photography projects, which revolve around a philosopher or have been inspired by his life, an aspect of his work or a specific concept
-Between 1913 and 1914 L. Wittgenstein builds a hut in Skjolden, on the banks of the Norwegian fjords, to which he retreats in search of solitude.
-In 1954, three years after he passes away, the hut is destroyed.
-Between 1926 and 1928 he builds a house in Vienna for his sister Margaret, perceiving the impossibility of ever recovering what was once called home.
-The house is abandoned by its owner in 1939, used as a military hospital during the Second World War, occupied by the Russian army, recovered by its owner after the war (Margaret passes away in the house in 1958), sold and practically destroyed in 1971.
-Ludwig Wittgenstein died in 1951.
Using a process of documentation and interpretation, the project reconstructs Wittgenstein’s “life-houses” (non existent today) in an attempt to make them our own.
The “sepulchre” makes his absence visible; that place becomes the reincarnated form of the deceased’s body, a symbol or object of “poetic reaction” with which to retrieve the joy of that which has been lost or a sign of damage that has been diluted by passage of time.
With respect to the dead, the living are left with a body and memories that fade as time passes. To prevent their disappearance, “remains” must be preserved and carefully deposited, in an attempt to keep them in the present. To conquer the forgetfulness of men,”it is well to have, not only what men have thought and felt, but what their hands have handled, and their strength wrought, and their eyes beheld, all the days of their life.”(John Ruskin).
Professor, Architect, Photographer
He develops his work using cross disciplines such as architecture, painting, sculpture, video and photography. His projects are a reflection about time (the present and absent, the memory, and what has been destroyed or changed), the representation systems and the objects and architectures capacity to transform in symbols through a manipulated reconstruction (models).
