The Desktop Wallpaper Project featuring Kim Høltermand: Day Two

Kim Høltermand

For day two of Kim Høltermand‘s Desktop Wallpaper, we take a very contemplative turn. Playing with negative space and light, Høltermand peers into a manmade creation of metals and fiberglass to reinterpret them as a bird flexing its wing or even the scales of a beetle. The nebulous look at such a rough surface brings about a delicate beauty that only Høltermand could accomplish: it breathes organic life into the inanimate.

Titled Silo, I figured this darker desktop would be best for a Tuesday: almost halfway through the week…but, not quite yet! For whatever reason, this image evokes something very triumphant and even “divine” (whatever that means). Tomorrow we’ll have the third of Høltermand’s five wallpapers. I hope you enjoy this wallpaper and please be sure to check back in tomorrow for another great image.
