Syncope (the medical term for “fainting” or “passing out”) examines the feeling of being disoriented and puts it into the context of our modern everyday life: Again and again, we lose track of what is happening around us – and when we concentrate the most, we often find ourselves thinking about nothing at all. This metaphorical temporary loss of consciousness has become a daily companion for many people in our fast-paced and complex society.
Within a total of twelve images, the conceptual series “Syncope” explores situations in life that are staged, but, at the same time, draw their inspiration from the world around us and our common experience.
Are we still able to focus in a world so full of stimuli? And how do we deal with ongoing as well as upcoming personal and societal challenges?
