Holzsteine

BY WOLFGANG SCHWARZMANN
@ VOL 8 ON OCT 15, 2015

Wolfgang Schwarzmann ist Architekt. Seit seiner Bachelorarbeit ist er bereits auf der Suche nach wahrer Schönheit. Für ihn gibt es nichts Schönes, das nicht auch etwas Unschönes an sich hat. Dieser Kontrast, dieses Spannungsfeld fasziniert ihn. Auf der Suche nach einem banalen, neutralen Ding, welches nicht den Anspruch auf Schönheit hat, ist er auf den Kieselstein gestoßen. Er sammelte, sortierte, vermaß, zeichnete, baute, spiegelte sie... Seht selbst!
