Globally acclaimed miminalist architect, John Pawson, celebrates colors through 320 inspiring photographs."Pawson is a lot more than just an architect; he's also handy with a camera and has a good eye for what makes a nice picture." -MonocleGlobally acclaimed architectural designer John Pawson takes you on a multi-colored journey across the world through a carefully curated sequence of 320 images. It's a celebration of color from one of the most unexpected sources. His architecture might be known for its limited color palette - primarily white - but Pawson's photographs tell another story. Pawson is always taking photographs of patterns, details, textures, and spatial arrangements that often inform his work, which includes the new Design Museum in London and Calvin Klein retail stores.
'In a work called Auge/Maschine, Harun Farocki coined the term "suicide camera." Auge/Maschine shows cameras mounted to the tips of missiles during the first Gulf War. The camera would broadcast live until it exploded. But contrary to all expectations, the camera was not destroyed in this operation. Instead it burst into billions of small cameras, tiny lenses embedded into cell phones. The camera from the missile exploded into shards that penetrated people's lives, feelings, and identities, skimming their ideas and payments.' Hito Steyerl: Duty Free Art
