Photo, film and kinetic installations by Fabian Oefner
Photographer Fabian Oefner’s visual expression is focused on the invisible effects of natural sciences and on the properties of time. He grew up in Switzerland where he still lives and works today. After being Leica’s Director of Visual Style for Geosystems (2009-2012), Fabian Oefner continued to explore and experiment. In 2013, he founded Studio Oefner.
The “Disintegrating Series” shows high performance cars blowing apart, the “Black Hole Series” became the centerpiece of 2015 World Science Festival Gala that celebrated the 100th Anniversary of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. His most recent installation, “Field of Sound”, created in collaboration with Peugeot Design Lab, is a kinetic sculpture using more than 5000 Plexiglas blades, driven by the sound of a piano. The installation is another demonstration of Oefner’s ability to transform complex theories into physical art.
