Large Photoworks / 2000 - 2004


Between 2000 and 2004, Michiel Kluiters worked on a series of large photographs. These photos are of fictional architectural spaces. He built these as scale models around the focal point of his camera.  


The photos of empty rooms, most of which have a thick, reflective glossy layer, have a cinematic feel to them. These photos are reminiscent of a cinema screen hung on a wall. They show strange, alien representations within an everyday environment. This gives the viewer space to think. And, more literally, the glossy layer creates a reflection of the spectator and their own surroundings within the photo. The photographs are thereby a metaphor for the process by which you project your thoughts onto your environment.
