SELF-CONFIDENT SINGEN - A PHOTO INSTALLATION BY ARTIST FLORIAN SCHWARZ
Singen, where the 3A Composites site has been producing the original DIBOND® aluminium composite panel for almost 30 years, presents a photo installation by artist Florian Schwarz - printed on DIBOND® digital - as part of the open air Stadtgarten Gallery in the town park.
"In times of rapid and wide-ranging digitalization, there has been a major change in our perception of work and its value. The visual emphasis of this art project is directed towards forms of physical labour which our society tends to take too much for granted, and which have become almost "invisible" as a result. The primary objective is to "raise AWARENESS" about these particular areas of work. To “take pride" in the importance of this work. The artist Florian Schwarz portrays municipal workers from very different working sectors – everyone was photographed during a work break," according to the Singen’s Kulturbüro (Office for Culture).
Direct digital printing was used to print the photos onto DIBOND®digital material. The aluminium composite panel, which was specially developed for direct digital printing on flatbed printers, offers an optimized coating system and guarantees the very best adhesion for UV-curing and solvent-based inks. The extremely flat surfaces allow the display of very fine lines as well as small fonts. DIBOND®digital is UV-resistant and temperature-resistant up to 80°C, making it the best choice for the Singen open-air gallery.
Large format panels, measuring 1500x3050mm, were chosen for the exhibition in order to achieve the best possible visual language. Choosing a location for the exhibition in a public space means that, even in these challenging Covid-19 times, a wide number of visitors have access.
