Neoplasticism In Foam

German multimedia artist Katja Windau extended the life of her recent wall installation Die Zelle des Piet M (“The Cell of Piet M.”) Inspired by Piet Mondrian, inventor of neoplasticism, she had covered a wall in a strict arrangement of pastel foam left over from the production of furniture, creating a padded prison like those used to secure madmen.
Following the project, she took detail photos, which she abstracted, mirrored and partially re-colored on the computer.
“Only by a close view can you perceive the structure of the originating material and its three-dimensionality,” she says of the digital collage series called Schauma 2011.
