Like many artists, Peter Piller had to find a boring part-time job in an office to support his work and guarantee some regular income. During his working hours, like many other employees, he passed his time by dreaming or discussing minor events in the company. Except that he did this on paper, in drawings. The book gathers together a selection of these office drawings, which portray, with a sense of absurd humor, the everyday life of an office and the nature of these jobs.
The publication is part of the series of artist's projects edited by Christoph Keller.
Peter Piller (born 1968, Fritzlar, Germany) studied German language and literature and trained as a visual artist. His approach to photography, based largely on an enourmous amount of collected and archived photographs, is striking and unique.
