In 2017, The New York Times revealed that the American ministry of Defence for years had been investing millions of dollars in secret UFO investigations. At that time, the photographer Robert Pufleb (DE) had already recorded numerous mysterious flying saucers. He first encountered them in the Chinese megacity Chongqing and since then photographed dozens of UFO’s in China and several European cities. But are we really seeing the vessels of extraterrestrial visitors?
TRANSFORMER is the essence of a three-year project which assembles photographs of floodlights illuminating urban spaces and roadside areas around cities in China, France, Germany and Latvia. With an optical shifting technique, Pufleb was able to make the posts disappear without altering the lighting modules themselves, creating a point of view from an impossible perspective.
Including a conversation on various aspects of transformation with Dr. Gregor Jansen (director Kunsthalle Düsseldorf) and Prof. Mischa Kuball (Academy of Media Arts, Cologne).
Robert Pufleb is a photographer, graduated in Photography/Visual Communication from the University of Wuppertal, having attended HdK Berlin as well as at USC, Los Angeles. He explores the perception of visual phenomenons emerging from everyday situations, creating an atmosphere of ambivalence, constantly challenging the secrets of the visible. His work has been shown internationally in the US, Russia, Europe and China.
