at hpht.space we always make sure that our love for image-making stays the number one priority in everything that we do.
however, being confronted with having to make a living off ones creativity, it can be hard sometimes to recognise and distinguish all the various influences that alter our artistic decisions.
that is why, at the very beginning of every new project, we get together to discuss and reflect our thoughts, ideas and desires.
as a group, it is not only our goal to create a modern, yet substantial product, as it is implied by our name (‚hpht‘ stands for high pressure/high temperature, the process in which artificial diamonds are created), but also to gather new insights and solutions to problems one could not have solved alone.
our *paper is exactly that. it is a representation of our very intimate aesthetic heartbeat, a kind of mood board to communicate our current sensibility and perception of the modern world and the thoughts triggered by it.
in our first issue, *paper °1, we explored the impact of ‚spirituality’ in our photography. we shared our experiences through an included transcript with each of us talking about how our images came together, as well as describing the actual process of taking the photographs.
additionally, we held a panel discussion earlier this year at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, to not only be able to share our thoughts, but also to create a dialogue with people outside of our group.
we sincerely want to thank everybody for attending our release party at our new studio at Fahrbereitschaft.
to celebrate the upcoming holiday season we are offering a 20% discount on *paper °1 if you enter the promo code 'XMAS'.
we believe that *paper °1 makes a great present for loved ones.
today we are especially thrilled to inform you that *paper °2 will be released soon.
in its essence related to *paper °1, *paper °2 takes things one step further as we have created a tool for ourselves to help us navigate through the complexity of this world and we can't wait to share it with you.
