A German Photographer Builds 9 Massive Waves of Deadwood in a Forest Near Hamburg

Jörg Gläscher is a German photographer, working in the field of documentary photography and photojournalism.
Just like many of us, his life was greatly affected by the coronavirus pandemic. However, despite the governmental and personal restrictions, he decided to take matters into his own hands and got creative. Ever since then, Jörg has been working about the pure power of nature which brings one of the richest country in the world to a completely still stand.

He has been creating a visual diary he calls the C19,1-20, The Diary Complex. It contains 20 different pieces of Jörg’s work, ranging from photography to sculpture. And one of its latest work has been quite popular all over the internet.

Below you can see some of Jörg’s mesmerizing waves, and read some additional information which the artist has personally shared with EarthWonders.

Jörg Gläscher decided to spend his pandemic time in a forest near Hamburg to create a series of artistic installations.

“So I went into a forest near Hamburg and all these waves are build by myself, from November 2020 till March 2021. In total 9 different waves. I only use what we call dead wood, I didn’t cut a single tree.” said Jörg

“The largest, No. 8, is nearly 4 meters high and 9 meters wide. After I took the picture I destroyed it to build a new one from the material.” explained the artist.

“A wave is a periodic oscillation or one-time disturbance change in the state of a system,” claimed the artist.
From small undulating waves to massive four-meter-tall crests, each installation appears to grow from the ground, displaying the immense power nature can have.

“Observations are manifold, individual, not directly trans- ferable and can be experienced in many different ways.
A perceived object can generate impact in numerous ways. Is it standing still? Has it moved? Nothing is ever as
it seems.

“Are appearances therefore deceptive?” pondered Jörg. “No, they are not necessarily deceptive, but they join me on a journey, wash over me, swirl through me, make me anxious, retreat, and then rush towards me all over again. „But that can’t be” says the left, “but I see and feel it“ says the right half of my brain.”

“I can go through them, stop them, touch them, but everything comes to a standstill and goes no further. I have to let it go. Standing up, the second wave rolls over me,” explains the artist. “It is unique, it was unique. I lift my head, take it by the hand and recognize the vibration and the recurring sensation, and with it the fear disappears. Should it come, I will be ready.”

Although Jörg hasn’t reveal yet the location of the waves, visionary explorers might still discover them hidden somewhere in the woods around Hamburg.

Climate Change Signs: How Do We Know?

Our climate is changing around us faster than predicted. From more frequent and extreme storms to unprecedented heatwaves, we’re indeed feeling the impacts of human-caused global warming. The icebergs are melting, various locations are experiencing greater flooding, wildfires are happening more frequently, and so on.

Specifically, scientists have studied past climate changes to understand the factors that can cause the planet to warm or cool. The big ones are changes in solar energy, ocean circulation, volcanic activity as well as the number of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Thus, they have each played a role at times. However, human activities are not an exception since it is believed to be main contributors to such increases in average global temperatures

And although we’re all concerned about climate change when it looks like a problem for future generations, we still ask ourselves, ‘will climate change even affect me?’ No matter what we care about, climate change is already affecting our world today. While we still have time to limit the worst impact, we have collected 15 great reasons to start acting now.

These photos illustrate the state of the planet and our climate, as it has changed over the past decade. They reveal how much seriously we must consider the climate change issues!
