Marten Lange, The Mechanism
The Mechanism is a melancholic series of black-and-white photographs that form a sci-fi story about contemporary life by Swedish photographer Mårten Lange.
Bringing together images made in multiple cities, the work deals with themes of technology, surveillance and urban society. Lange traces the impact of technology on human consciousness, using architectural tropes to build a narrative loaded with the threats and promises of the future. Cutting back and forth between close-up views and cityscapes, The Mechanism offers a filmic sequence of photographs that is at once affective and estranging.
