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.
Florian Amoser lives and works in Olten, Switzerland. After working for the last five years in the Bachelor and Master Photography at ECAL as well as conducting the research project Automated Photography (Together with Milo Keller and Claus Gunti), he is now focussing on his personal artistic practice. Florian graduated from ECAL in photography in 2017 with honors. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in architecture from ETH Zurich (2011).
