Heat Recovery by Oliver Pauk

” The most significant way in which humans waste energy is in the form of heat. In North America, nearly half of the energy produced is released from our products, processes and buildings, directly into the atmosphere and the water system. Waste heat recovery is the process of harnessing this thermal energy and re-using it. I have chosen to photograph heating, ventilation and air conditioning units and to use the effect of thermal imagery in order to portray their huge potential for heat recovery. Estimates state that in the U.S., waste heat recovery has the potential to satisfy forty percent of total energy requirements. Operating at this level would save the American economy roughly 150 billion dollars per year and would, simultaneously, decrease greenhouse gas emissions by twenty percent; the equivalent of taking every passenger vehicle off of the road.” – Oliver Pauk

Time (Wall Street) by John Clang

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

A series that involves recording a location, to show the passing of time in a montage style. There is a sense of intimate intricacy of how time moves, and how people, albeit in a different time, are actually closer to one another and traveling in the same shared space. I’ve always been intrigued by the constant subtle changes in my urban environment. Every subtle shift affects my feelings and thoughts, hence my images respond acutely as a poetic reflection of myself in this environment. Working on this series, I explore how time moves in this seemingly static urban space. The people become the moving energy flowing through this space, marking the changes, forming the time. These images also explore my fascination that there are probably many time dimensions in this universe. We may have a ‘life’ that exists similarly on a different path, one minute before or after the one we’re living now. We merely just exist in this current dimension, and sometimes when time paths collide, we have déjà vu experience. Link here.

‘ I’m a photographer who has a concept of “Control” for my work. Water is one of “uncontrolled” things which the human being never can to do. I had a lot of opportunities to think about ‘water’ with doing scuba diving in several countries as a hobby. The beauty of sunshine viewed from under water, daily life of aquatics and me as human just be able to see their world for a moment… We thought human could control water if we had lots of equipments and cared for risks in water, but human never be able to live in water. And we also never be able to live without water. Water doesn’t only give a life, but also takes a life. On the other hand, water is not the Mother of Creation or the Master of Destruction, it’s just be there as ‘water’. Water is a philosophical existence very much even be as ’just water’. I had been fascinated with water more and more and I had gotten a zeal for expression it. It is one of reasons which I became a photographer, so I have been creating my works which has a relation with water. I’m expressing “enthusiasm for life” by photography throughout the figure of Water and Human.’ – Tomohide Ikeya
