Background of attention

A delayed intervention


BOA - Background of attention at a site of special interest Kaspar Wimberley

At sites of special interest the same ‘shots’ are photographed by countless tourists. If you were to place yourself within this frame, you will have been captured, archived and shared amongst strangers all over the world, time after time after time. I have started to slip into this background and leave behind a trail of texts, creating fractured narratives, posing questions and inviting response, doing this without being noticed until the photos are viewed at a later date; a delayed intervention.

Background of attention continues an interest with the background, the unnoticed drama that resides there and the moments when we unknowingly find ourselves at that same location.

Join me in a guerilla-esque intervention at some of Stuttgarts most visited and photographed locations.
