Structures and systems of order are the predominant themes of Berlin based artist Menno Aden (*1972), known for his cartographic photographic works. Aden's photo series deal topographically and analytically with our built environment. Although mostly absent, his works always show traces of the human being.
A series of neon tubes beneath an open coffered ceiling reveal hidden infrastructures of pipe systems. The analytical mapping transforms into an abstract and minimalist composition of patterns, whose monotonous arrangements are rhythmically broken by breaks, gaps and slack cables.
