Philipp Messner - CLOUDS

Philipp Messner
Suite Clouds

To create CLOUDS, a performative installation, Philipp Messner placed snow cannons in urban spaces in Munich for a period of over a month. By adding paint, they produced coloured artificial snow, which over time formed a picturesque, walkable field made up of crystalline layers of colour. The project deals with notions of artificiality and reality and deconstructs what is perceived as the (natural) environment. A photographic series (34x23cm each) captures the temporary artwork.
