Photography collection by Michael Rohde are images of rooms from the perspective from the ground looking up, to great effect:
Trained on centralize perspectives, the eye struggles for orientation. The work series FROM BELOW by Michael H. Rohde does offer a vanishing point to clearly focus on. However, instead of providing a reasonable arrangement of the picture, it rather contributes to its destabilization. Rohde’s utopian views of interior spaces keenly challenge our perception. The view of the room from below the floor, to be determined only by a mathematically logical concept of perception, at first appears to be easily comprehensible. But then it quickly withdraws itself into a self-contained aesthetic, dynamic in its own right and free of any structuring orientation system.
The virtually impossible total view of a room from down below and the lack of a well-familiar structuring of the motif into different picture surfaces render the furniture and other objects weightless. They appear to be floating and tumbling through the space as though denying gravity. Merely the alert view of the observer supports them as it tries to defend itself against the suggestive collapsing of the room’s interior.
