Silent Counts – Johan Rosenmunthe
In Silent Counts Rosenmunthe examines rocks as tactile objects through different instruments, angles and compositions. Stones are hard, brutal and dismissive, but also shares an oddly romantic aura of transcendence and time. Stones are weight, surface, age, numbers. Organized and systematically he looks at them in a geological perspective, and applies to them a nostalgic, scientific and philosophical point of view. He tries to make images (two-dimensional as well as spatial) that act as surface and natural results of an experiment. The transition between photography, installation and sculpture is liquid, as he deals with the same conceptual issues.
