Alfred Ehrhardt's first photographic work DAS WATT (1933 - 36) is an ode to nature. It is one of the outstanding pictorial achievements of the 1930s avantgarde photography. The artistic quality of this series is also unparalleled among the masters of photography of the New Objectivity.
Formed at the Dessau Bauhaus in the preliminary course of Josef Albers, Ehrhardt was fascinated by the abstract structures in the sand that are created daily by wind and water, which remind him of the material science lessons, where "structure, texture and facture" were captured by matter. Following the principle of the series of images, he traces the laws of nature in the interaction of the forces of nature by comparing the shape variations created daily. His typology of false brinelling of sand consciously suggests a connection between microcosm and macrocosm.
