Placing large sticks in the snow is most likely the oldest method in the world for marking a way in winter. The ancient method has remained unaffected throughout centuries, and in modern Switzerland snow posts are as commonplace as ever before. Their use is not subject to any regulations as neither size nor color nor material are specified and every community is free to apply its own rules and systems. This box of cards ‘Schneezeichen’ presents this particular aspect of Swiss culture. For many years, the author has collected a large number of these prototypes of visual communication and photographed them individually. The undefined white-gray background is a connotation of snow that maintains the familiar color scheme of the theme, while at the same time deleting and decontextualizing any practical aspects. In this ambiguity the signs can gain their own language, revealing their true nature to the observer.

Book Description Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Niggli | Das Stecken von großen Stöcken dürfte die älteste Methode sein, im Winter einen Weg zu markieren. Dem urzeitlichen Leitsignal haben die Jahrhunderte nichts anhaben können, der Schneepfahl ist heute in der Schweiz so selbstverständlich wie eh und je. Sein Einsatz ist völlig unreguliert, weder Größe noch Farbgebung noch Material sind festgelegt, jede Gemeinde folgt ihren eigenen Regeln und Systemen.Die Kartenbox Schneezeichen bildet dieses Stück Schweizer Kultur ab. Der Autor hat unzählige jener Urtypen visueller Kommunikation über mehrere Jahre hinweg in seinem Atelier zusammengetragen und einzeln fotografiert. Der undefinierte weiß-graue Hintergrund lässt einerseits Schnee-Assoziationen zu und bewahrt so das vertraute Farbmilieu des Motivs, gleichzeitig ist der Verweis auf den Gebrauchszusammenhang getilgt und dekontextualisiert. In dieser Zweideutigkeit finden die Objekte zu ihrer Sprache und offenbaren sich dem Betrachter. | Format: Book | Language/Sprache: german/deutsch | 1602 gr | 257x211x51 mm.
