In this photoseries by German photographer Martin Klimas, he drops japanese porcelain fighting figures and photographs the moment of impact and breaking. How does he do it? He sets the camera to go off at the moment it "hears" the crash. The photos show beautiful breakage, in the way that only a high-speed camera can capture (faster than even the naked eye). All sorts of interpretations came to me when seeing this sequence : how we value objects in their present form, and deny ourselves of other "points of view" of them, so to speak. I also thought of how much we treasure objects, implanting all sorts of feelings and emotional clinging, when in fact we are just temporary custodians of them, nothing more.
