Gjenbruk er gjennomgangs ordet for prosjektet. Gjenbruk av et gammelt kamera som fanger dagens kultur men som fremviser den som tidløs i sort/hvitt behandlingen.
Bildene er trykket på metal plater og med resirkulerte metal rammer som er håndlaget/sveiset for prosjektet.
‘Fragments Of Rediscovered Time’ showcases the present day world of Sapa through the lens of a Kodak Duaflex II vintage camera from the early 1950's, with Mads Monsen’s keen eye to detail and composition portraying a visual documentation of Sapa in a striking and unique way not shown before.
‘Fragments of Rediscovered Time’, is born from the concept of raising awareness about sustainability through Reuse. It is also intended to explore and capture the essence of the past of the Sapa culture, people, their environment and how sustainability applies in the modern day with the advancement in infrastructure and technology surrounding them.
‘Fragments of Rediscovered Time’ showcases 20 prints on sheet metal, with old metal, hand-welded into custom art frames with a protective finish.
