To Navigate the Specific
To Navigate the Specific combines different photographic materials and approaches such as camera-less, analogue photography and digital reproduction of pre-existing images.
Oskar is interested in the relationship between the specific (indexical) nature of the individual photograph and its abstract reception as an image. Inspired by analytic and anti-subjective aesthetics of conceptual art, his work explores subjective experiences such as the emotional intensity of tragedy and the romantic quest for the sublime. On a visual and metaphorical level, To Navigate the Specific functions as a story derived from the sea where the self is about to get lost.
