Marie-Luise Charlotte Weier

Not a work for eternity

“Snow flurry” is the translation of the Finnish word “pyry”, which Marie-Luise Charlotte Weier chose as the title for her remarkable work. Indeed, one has to dress warmly when looking at her impressive photographs: frozen book pages allow the beauty of the Arctic Circle to shine through a thin layer of ice while symbolising its fragility. It takes effort to preserve this beauty – for the book, it is enough to maintain a permanent temperature of 0 degrees centigrade. Greater measures are required to protect the eternal ice.

Pyry thus inspires in several respects: in terms of content, the aesthetic photographs and their message could hardly be staged more intensively or more haptically experienceable; in terms of form, the special aesthetics of the risography and the technical realisation of the ice-covered pages are fascinating.

Marie-Luise Charlotte Weier, who is currently completing her master’s degree in contextual design at the Design Academy Eindhoven after graduating from the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW Ravensburg) in a dual study programme in media design, impressively shows with her work that the possibilities of analogue design are far from exhausted. Besides a borderline experience in icy cold, the artist herself has gained much more from her expedition: “The lightness, balance and efficiency of Finnish design and wonderful friendships.”
