C-F-H

December 14, 2014 in Abandoned by Chris OOM

Another exciding location of my ABANDONED places tour ’14.

It was a power station. The heart of the facility consists of two 35m ovens fired by coal to generate the heat-power. Beside that, several other halls and installations are worth to have a look. See here the series of the power station: As this time the light was excellent and the corrotion is advanced, you will have the pleasure to see it in colour.

bullaugenblues – LE4EL – Vernissage 16.12.2014

December 9, 2014 in Abandoned, LE4EL, Publication by Chris OOM

LE4EL will open it’s first exhibition with a vernissage on dec. 16th, 6pm in the Salon Irkutsk, Munich/Schwabing. The title of the exhibition is “bullaugenblues”.

Why “bullaugenblues” (~lit. bull’s eye’s blues)  – what is the background?

The story beginns in the 70th – In Munich / Leopoldstrasse has been built a futuristic amusement complex, the “Schwabylon”. In there a very special underground discotheque – the “Yellow Submarine”. It was a while the IN-location for the jet-set. The architecture, specially of the disco was very special: It was build 3 floors underground as a huge tank and kind of reverse aquarium. The visitors where inside and the waterside – just like a submarine. The windowes were bull’s eyes as you can see on the photos on our flyer below. After a few years of operation, the disco changed names a few times until it was closed. The surface complex was demolished a few year later, but the yellow submaring construction remained as a part of the Holiday-Inn hotel which was next to it. Last year (2013) the Holiday-Inn was also demolished in order to rebuild the whole quarter. LE4EL took the chance to pick of the last impressions of this famous place and it’s last sad days. More impressions have been collected on a facebook page of activists who wanted to keep it alive as a cultural monument.

As we have not been able to make an exhibition at the location itself, we found now the opportunity to exhibit in the Salon Irkutsk. This special bar lures people who might have lived their best time of the live in the yellow submarine….

I have documented the Holiday-Inn and the Yellow Submarine here, here and .

LE4EL has the intension to interprete a location or process from 3 different points of view by different artists. The exhibition will show the works of Jens, Helmut and myself. This is the link to the project page. The Exhibition can be found from december, 16th onwards also online.

Heinz’ bus

July 26, 2014 in Cities, D40OOM.eu [C], Street by Chris OOM

 

 

This bus, I’ve seen today in Munich, close to the residence. It remembers be to old movies of Heinz Erhardt, such as “Das kann unseren Willi doch nicht erschüttern“. Not that I like this kind of stuff, but it represents a kind of awareness of life of that time…

( more new photos also in D40OOM.eu [C] )

Tilt-Shift trials

July 13, 2014 in Cities by Chris OOM

I just came back from a trip to Japan with a ‘Lensbaby‘s ‘Control Freak’. This is a free adjustable tilt-shift optics with exhangable lens and aperture plates. It’s by far not usable for precise work, such as architecture photography, but is allows a wide degree of freedom for artistic works. Here two examples from of Munich’s Olpymic statium. The first one is a kind of classic tilt-shift style. The second one also, but more my style…

Here a first series
