Hi there! I thought of the following quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson when I saw this majestic structure: ”Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.” Perhaps a bit pretentious, but I think we all need to connect more with nature and realize we are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star as Stephen Hawking once said.
MARCUS WALLINDER is drawn to how we use buildings every day without reflecting on it and how they gradually become marked by time. Painted wooden doors start peeling and show colors from previous ideals while sheet metal and iron rust in an often random and unpredictable way. He’s mostly inspired by everyday environments and places that are unfortunately overlooked by others. Marcus likes to convey a sense of nostalgia from a bygone era that still exists in our everyday lives and is inspired by the minimal artistic style of the filmmaker, Wes Anderson.
