TENSION - EXPLORING URBAN SUSPENSE
This work explores the dynamics between our emotional tension experienced in relation to our urban surroundings, subject to season.
Röhrig set out to explore his urban environment in miserable weather, interested in how he would relate to the environment in these glum seasonal conditions.The resulting images underline experiences of tension, suspense, and eeriness, regarding the explored urban environment.
TENSION also depicts the relationship between man-made structures, the forces of nature, and our human positioning in relation to them.
Aluminum, as a man-made metal, was the chosen medium, to illustrate the dynamic interconnection of the unyielding man-made structures and the emotional tensions arising from the images.
By sharing his emotional experience with the viewer, Röhrig hopes to prompt us to reflect on how we feel within our urban environment at different times. Röhrig believes that when we are conscious about it, our environment reflects much of what happens within us.
