Fabian Oefner (born 1984, Switzerland) is a curious investigator, photographer and artist, whose work moves between the fields of art and science. His images capture in unique and imaginative ways natural phenomena that appear in our daily lives, such as sound waves, centripetal forces, iridescence, or the unique properties of magnetic ferroliquids. His exploration of the unseen and poetic facets of the natural world is an invitation, as he says, “to stop for a moment and appreciate the magic that constantly surrounds us.”
Artist Fabian Oefner visited Ferrari’s headquarters in Maranello to interpret the latest Ferrari Grand Tourer, the 2015 California T as an art form through his eyes. The resulting video is an exploration of the essence of the California T. It encapsulates the pillars of purposeful design and perpetual innovation that are constants in the creation of all of Ferraris.
In his work, Oefner strives to capture the unseen forces that appear in the natural world through unique images, taking a dynamic perspective of scientific phenomena like sound waves, centripetal forces and iridescence brought to life via vivid and unconventional means. State of the Art follows Oefner’s journey and his search for inspiration.
Oefner’s photographs have been exhibited in various countries and are part of private collections around the globe. Besides pursuing his own projects, he also collaborates with influential interna-tional brands on ad campaigns and art projects. He works and lives in Switzerland.
