Linde Hermans brings the fact of our material world right before our eyes. The different colors, textures, and emotions of material are highlighted in his project "The Matter of Matter." The starkness of the photography highlights the differences between the materials. Becoming aware of the physical environment is something that I believe we should all train ourselves to do. Ask the questions of why is the floor you stand upon wood, how would it make you feel or how would it sound if it were stone. How do the materials resonate within a space and how could different materials change the atmosphere? Hermans project highlights a great though experiment to practice anywhere.
