“God is in the details,” said architect Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe. While ‘architect’ is often the euphemism for master planner, we often overlook the attention to detail the architect exercises to create a masterpiece of a whole. Spotted with a magnifying glass and illustrating the mentioned phrase, is this series of photographs that capture the nuances of the design that our subconscious mind is always processing such that we experience the space the way we do.
These photographs by Ira Gosalia, reveal a collage of patterns that creates a work of art, threads and knots in a fabric that transforms the sofa, the grains in wood that adds depth to the space, the green outside a narrow slit in the wall that acts like a breather, and the light-shade-shadow that profoundly defines the experience; focussing on crucial elements that go unnoticed in the conscious state.
