A meditative series by photographer Katharina Bayer. Drawn to the architecture of public spaces and the interplay of intimacy and anonymity, Bayer’s work explores the affective relationship between people and the places they occupy, as well as herself, the image and the viewer. This series, taken during her time studying at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2018, is about “the ambiguity of a revolving door”:
“[the door] being open, accessible, and hermetically sealed all at the same time, matches the passage of life. There are unexpected situations, opening and closing chapters. Living can appear as a pushing through or a jamming by the uncontrollable forces of others. Yet, at times, the force and speed is determined by oneself.”
