Thomas Demand
German, b. 1964
Follow

Thomas Demand creates large-scale photographs that probe the relationship between reproduction and original. Trained as a sculptor, the German artist reconstructs media images of complex interior scenes using ephemeral materials like paper and cardboard. After photographing the painstakingly-crafted, life-sized models, Demand destroys them, leaving only photographic evidence of their fleeting existence. Demand's images often suggest recent activity, yet are eerily devoid of people, resembling the appearance of a film set or even a forensic photograph. Describing his practice of sculpture-based photography, Demand once said, "My work is in itself a ghost of my vision."
