The work of Els van der Monde is the photographic registration of a world that can only be seen through new media, i.e. the state of the art scanners and other photographic examinator*.
Like Blossfeldt she shows how the origin of all design lies in nature. And through the use of new technology she opens a new chapter on deadbeat nature. (Deadbeat nature, meaning, I’ve seen enough trendy nature wall art, by the way, no more palm leaves and pineapples please)
*) I wrote about this artform before, in Awesome by nature.
