Daniel von Sturmer: into a vacuum of future events
Video is at the heart of Von Sturmer’s current practice. His works in this medium are quiet, patient – and mesmerising. Using tabletop and domestic materials (a balloon, a polystyrene cup, a piece of BluTak) and occasional digital trickery (sequences run backwards here and there, cameras are tipped or turned so that objects appear to float up and adhere to ceilings), Von Sturmer crafts small loops of time that enthral and enlighten.
60 pages, full colour, with essays by Justin Paton and Andy Thompson.
Shortlisted for the 2006 Spectrum Print Book Design Awards for Best Illustrated Book.
