J. Scriba is a talented fine art photographer, media artist and physicist based in Elmshorn, Germany, who created amazing series “situ art” which he photographed airport, escalators, paternoster, travellers and beautiful fear. [situ_art] is about places and people at specific places. Most of the time Scriba observes what happens at these places, but sometimes he also change the place.
I use the term [situ art] to refer to art created at or in relation to a specific place (“in situ”). However, these projects at public places like airports, railway stations or office buildings don’t portrait concrete venues but rather capture the essence of a situation: a gathering of people linked by common goals or interests and the desire to communicate with each other and their surroundings.
