KONTRAPUNKT is ninth issue of PICNIC, the magazine by TRADEMARK PUBLISHING. In KONTRAPUNKT the Japanese artist Takashi Suzuki combines two photographic series. The BAU series attempts to extemporaneously assemblage colorful sponges – meticulously photographed in 45-degrees-angle with a plain black background. The second series shows details of Japanese cityscapes. Suzuki challenges our perception as objects appear in a two dimensional image. The sponge series starts to appear as architecture, whilst the chaos of the street scenes dissolves into orderly structures and textures.
