The dissected sculptures of Fabian Oefner, explore the limits of time, space and reality, creating fictitious moments and spaces, which look and feel real, but are not.
Dissecting different components of reality, the Swiss artist is inspired by science creating unexpected moments with works carefully orchestrated and planned down to the last detail.
To do this, Oefner dissects the different components of reality, giving a clearer understanding of how we perceive and define it.
In this manner the artist creates artificial moments by photographing each dismantled piece individually, to digitally organizing them into a single photograph that becomes a hyper-realistic interpretation of a moment that never existed.
Oefener, spends hundreds of hours on each piece, as his Heisenberg series which are based on the famous Uncertainty Principle of Werner Heisenberg.
This theory states that two separate parameters of a particle cannot be measured simultaneously. You can determine one parameter and ignore the other or vice versa, but you can never know everything at once.
Oefner took this idea from the world of physics and created these sculptures that are made of five different everyday objects: zclothes, a watch, a tape recorder and a black box.
To achieve this effect, the creative filled them with resin and carefully cut them into hundreds of individual parts. He then rearranged the slices into a new distorted version of the object, allowing him to see its inner workings.
Through this transformation, objects have a peculiar effect that when viewed from a distance, they are easily identified. However, when observed closely, the shape of the object begins to distort and disappears entirely.
