STATEMENT
Florian Amoser’s works explore various aspects of human perception. Ever since photography was invented, humans have used it as an instrument to extend the limits of their ability to observe. Consequently, the technological development of the photographic apparatus has a decisive influence on our perception. Amoser builds his own original tools for his artistic works, which make new photographic images possible. His photographs bear witness to a material dissolution of the environment in which physical reality begins to imitate a new digital reality.
