My father, the building assessor Dipl. Ing. H.-U. Stroebel took photographs documenting the different architectural damages he examined. As measuring instruments he used a crack measuring gauge and a folding rule. Based on his inspections, he wrote reports illustrated with his images as proof. His archive contains around 600 photographs of potential damages.
My own work analyses this archive, thus de-contextualizing the visual urgency of his images outside their professional context. In various scribbles and experiments, the project explores whether or not there is a deeper meaning in these apparently useless pictures and how measuring as such is some kind of visual metaphor.
The project consist of 27 photographs, two collages, two objects, one drawing and one book.
