Starting point for the artist book Piece of Colonne. Fragments of Waves by Tamami Iinuma is a multi-coloured memo block in the shape of a spiral (which the artist found in a kiosk in Leipzig) and the artist’s question of how tremors, more precisely earthquakes, can be visualized in the pictorial representations of architectures.
Piled up to form a column, she photographed multiple paper blocks using a macro lens. Focusing with her camera beyond infinity, the colours, their density and shades started flowing into each other. Releasing the shutter, Tamami Iinuma tried to capture this moment like a surging wave.
The photographs taken and assembled in this artist book evoke thoughts of never-ending landscapes, a waving sea.
