Nine massive waves of deadwood near Hamburg

From nov 2020 till march 2021, during the pandemic, photographer and artist Jörg Gläscher went to a forest near Hamburg to build 9 different ephemeral waves of deadwood. The largest is nearly 4 meters high and 9 meters wide.

"A wave is a periodic oscillation or unique disturbance the state of a system"

In autum 2020, as the fear of the second waves of the C19 pandemic dominates daily life in Germany. With a wide range of governmental restrictions, Jörg Gläscher decided to channel his own worry into a project that felt similarly vast and domineering.

“I was working about the pure power of nature, the all-destroying force, which brings one of the richest countries in the world to a completely still stand"

Jörg Gläscher is a german photographer working on long term photographic project on social and political issues. Follow him on instagram and discover more of his work on his website: glaescher.de together with his own digitial magazines.
