Photography and Metaphysics Volume 2:
Immanuel Kant and the Aesthetic of Chaos
True photographs are illustrations of motives that speak to us in a different way than via their pure aesthetics and in a nagging way want to reveal us some greater depths about the things. But their content and their significance are difficult to grasp. So difficult that they can plunge us in doubt about our work and by those means about ourselves. Photography and Metaphysics is the attempt to rationalize such images, gain insight into their being and fertilize photography by looking at actually unrelated topics. - A kind of self verification, so to speak.
This second part of the series explains with the terms „the Beautiful“ and „the Sublime“ the basics of the aesthetic judgments of Immanuel Kant´s philosophical thinking and, using the modern physical research branch of chaos research, shows that we can actually find the two underlying terms of universality and infinity in all natural processes.
