someone to look at

Friend and remarkable artist, Tobias has a minimal aesthetic and a clear eye which helps him to capture daily movements.
His video installations are poetic and always curated in an astonishing way which allows the visitor to feel instant empathy with the work.
Currently studying a BA in Goldsmiths College he has been awarded last year with the prestigious  The Hamad Butt Memorial Prize,  from the Goldsmiths Art Department.

This is how he describes his practice:
I am interested in human and mechanical movement in time and space and have a fascination with the act of looking in combination with the moving image. Through a process of observing and framing I am searching for poetry in the everyday, which leads me to minimalist studies of the borderland between the artificial and the real. A contemplative view on mundane and urban environment often reveals my appeal to modernist aesthetics and compositions. Today the moving image is my preferred choice of media, though many years with focus on photography leave as much an impression on my work as my vocational education in architecture. My photographic approach often materialises in static cameras and the waiver of sound, while the profession of the draftsman is mirrored in my interest for architectural and human space when mapping movement within it.

I love and support his work.
