Each of the works is a matrix of photographs the artist took from multiple rooftops in one day. The viewer can imagine himself hovering above the urban landscape and experience an ever-expanding perspective; from the edges of the buildings to the horizon, traversing different areas. The work features cities like Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Shanghai and Chongqing.

Space-Time-Lines, by Wouter van Buuren in the Oude Kerk, Redlight District, air8 Amsterdam

SPACE - TIME - LINES were exhibited in 'De Oude Kerk' in Amsterdam during Art in Redlight 2012.

This series is about traveling through the landscape and the experience of continuity and change. To reflect the essence of traveling I have followed strait lines formed by rows of electricity towers during day long trips. During these trips I have climbed the subsequent electricity towers (eleven in number) and photographed from their summits into the same compass direction.

On the three prints exhibited these photographs have been laid out in arrays. The left columns show the view from the first climbed tower in the morning. Moving to the right you see the subsequent views from the next towers ending with the 11th from which I photographed in the early evening.

The images formed by the combined photographs are cylindrical projections of the landscapes travelled through. At the same time they are documents of these travels showing the effect of shifting perspectives and the passing of time.
