Like a scanner I group myself through the city, details and totals, odd and common things, herdweare and softwear. Sterile concrete landscapes enclose the Old Town, it seems asleep and awake at the same time.
Melancholic claddings form the passepartouts of the wrinkly, paved street scenes the plagrounds of the Young. Gabbing at street corners, cracks and crimbling brickwork tell the city´s stories.
The antagonism presents a New City that attests to western prosperity. Lowered shutters on clean facades, onlY satellite dishes allude to occupants. Empty, hugely applied parkways inbetween prestigious motorways decorated with palmtrees.
Lifelessness dominates the image. CitY planning for growth, a satellite that´s not living yet?
Hundreds of pictures could never tell ones own impression of a place.
In "Ewolluschen Castelo Branco" ca. 300 pictures are combined to create a photo-realistic collage splitted in two parts. The citiy´s panorama concentrates real images of Catselo Branco and draws a portrait of the city and it´s development.
