  • Martin Klimas was born 1971, Singen, Lake of Konstanz, Germany. Klimas is the colorful and creative hybrid of photographers Edweard Muybridge and Dr. Harold Edgerton. Through his own experimentation with motion and the cause and effect in gravity, Klimas’ photographs explore relationships with time, beauty and destruction. In his work with Porcelain, Klimas uses a strobe light and a single camera frame; one chance of the figurine dropping and shattering. In his series Flowers, a spring-fired projectile bursts the base of the vase into a bedlam of fragmented pieces. In each photograph, Klimas shows the transformation of solid object into one that is in between, a temporary sculpture that comes together for a moment, creating a comforting notion that something beautiful can be created out of chaos.
  • What does museum look like? When we listen to Miles playing “Bitches Brew” or Pink Floyd’s David Glimour charming his reverberating guitar on “Time”, what do we see? In his body of work, Sonic, the Düsseldorf based photographer explores the possibilities. Guided by the science of wave phenomenon, Klimas brings together a mix of psychedelic paint, high-speed camera technology and a jukebox full of music. He uses paint as an abstract expressionist might, making a photographic recording that captures the feel and gesture of music’s sound. He pours paint over a protected speaker diaphragm while a selected section of music is played through it, launching the paint -projectile style- in mid air. The sounds of the music can be seen in comparison, measured by the paint’s reaction to vibration and Klimas’ choice of colors. Klimas explores the expression of sound, adding one more visceral element to its total experience. Klimas is the colorful and creative hybrid of photographers Edweard Muybridge and Dr. Harold Edgerton. Through his own experimentation with motion and the cause and effect in gravity, Klimas’ photographs explore relationships with time, beauty and destruction.
