From the immediate proximity of the sidewalk, the overall architecture of adjacent buildings is often not disclosed to the pedestrian. The surface structure of the facade, its shade and state are among the most salient features that impact the passer-by. From a distance, the shades of a street are a defining aspect. And in this way, individual building fronts can affect entire streets.
In „Wandeling“ (Dutch for „stroll“), Julia Gaisbacher makes use of these building elements to portray the Gent district of Brugse Poort. An abstract colour raster is a result, in place of urban vedute. Upon closer examination of these seemingly monochromatic images, the structure of wall plaster reveals their true nature.
