Frej Rosenstjerne - Prolonging State Of Mind

Frej Rosenstjerne (born 1982 in Denmark ) graduated from Fatamorgana School of Photography in 2010. Since then, he has since taken part in exhibitions both in Denmark and internationally. 

‘Prolonging State of Mind I’ can only be experienced by entering the space where the pictures are. In here, the photograph is no longer a captured moment, but rather like a deep breath; an extension of the senses. A photographic installation that thematizes the sensory presence in an increased digitalized and fleeting reality.  Where are the boundaries between the ‘genuine’ nature and manmade nature in a world driven by technology. Man’s sentimental attempt to preserve and archive what is natural, is present as an echo. Upon closer examination, the digital collages expose the dream of what truly is. The spectator is prompted to pause and procrastinate in its company. The fleeting moment we usually associate with a photo has been extended into a new reality.  “Prolonging State of Mind” is a photographic installation that thematizes a sensory presence in a digital and fleeting contemporary time. “Prologing State of Mind” can only meaningfully be experienced by entering the physical space where the images are placed.
