Glass and Concrete by nxxos Glass and Concrete by nxxos
This picture was taken in Bangkok. From the top of the Golden Mount you have a great view over the whole city.

The front of this condominium is filled with windows, and there is not much space between them. It would be perfectly symmetric and regular if there was not this rooftop in the lower left corner of the image. If you imagine that each window stands for one person living behind it you not only get a feeling of the overpopulation in our cities but also of the restriction and even loss of individualism which goes with our modern world. We are pressed into patterns and forced to comply with standards of the system. Rebels against the mainstream are regarded as outlaws.



Where do you live?

Mir sind beinahe die Augen auseinander gelaufen, als ich das Bild sah. Das hast du toll gemacht!
Ich muss zugeben, die Symmetrie hat mich auf den ersten Blick beinahe umgebracht. Klare Strukturen, die aufeinadergehäufelt in einem kompaktem System verpackt sind. Wenn ich mir vorstellte, dort zu leben...
Auf jeden Fall ist es ein wunderbares Foto - provokativ (wie auch die Beschreibung dazu) und bringt einen zum nachdenken. Vor allem gefällt mir das einbeziehen des Hauses in der linken Randecke - es zerstört die strenge Strukturen und passt dorthin schlichtweg wie die Faust aufs Auge.
