With These Hands – A Story of Creation

Karin Ott

I’d like to share another story with you. Above is a picture of the art work ‘Floating Island of Pearls’. The official opening was yesterday. below is why I’m showing you this.

The 1.8 * 1.8 meter square of images in the foreground is created by me. Isabel Berglund knitted her amazing work of art with the help of 47 women. I saw her poster asking for volunteers right when the project was starting. “What a wonderful photo opportunity,” I thought and contacted Isabel.

You see the result here. In the end I was invited by Isabel to exhibit along with her. My goal was to create a kind of baby book to show the island how it had come to be created. With mainly close-ups of hands knitting and working with shallow depth of field I tell the story of creation to complement the viewing of the actual art work. Here are a few more images from yesterday.

In honor of warm days and my favorite ice cream place opening at the beach, the next series will be dedicated to Amager Beach. This shot is from about a months ago when Café Allehånde, located on a boat by the beach, held a reception. The café is part of a project that helps hearing disabled young people with training.
