Neues Institutsgebäude NIG

2008-05-09 1

If you`re into late 70’s asbest-architecture, this is the place for you. Some clear instructions: enter this University building preferably in the evening when there are no more lazy students around. Have a 50 cent coffee at one of the automats. Say hi to one of the people lying around there. Go to the entrance hall again and get ready for an unforgettable adventure! Step into the grand PATERNOSTER elevator (this thing is made out of wood and goes up and down with crazy mechanics) and occupy yourself by reading the students paroles for vegan food. Get transported to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floor and do not descend. When you`re reaching the 5th floor, a sign (see image) will tell you to get the hell off the elevator. The sign somehow signifies that horrible things may happen. But you`ll stay and become a hero. Hold your plastic cup tight. Catch your last breath. Load your camera and take some pictures of your awestruck face. Nuff said, you`ll see for yourself, my friend!

    Photographic Pairs

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
