Karl Felix, a photographer and creative director born in Germany, works at the intersection of fashion and fine art. His work is informed by his studies of social structure, digital innovations and the rise of surveillance, which contrasts with his devotion to nature.

The projects take place at an artificial setting, where interactions between groups and fictional characters arise, as well as attempting to disrupt heteronormative ideals outside the art and fashion industries.


















Projects:

01 CityTour
02 PlanSpiel
03 TagTräumer
04 LandTime
05 AktionsRaum
06 WindowService



LandTime is a collaboration between Set Designer Tom Schneider and Karl Felix. These figures can be seen as alter egos and generic urban types, scenes of modernity reinvested by nature. The result is uncanny images of life on hold, wrapped in a reinvented folklore; a placeholder that evokes conditions of in-betweenness: closeness and isolation, absence and presence, individuality and collectively.

‘The office is empty, the flowers are dry.
Our suits are dusty and we got shy.’
