Means of Digital Images
The project »Means of Digital Images« focuses on the inner-picture processes and structures of digital photography. Key questions are the production of digital images, what form of information they transfer and what we believe to see through this new form of images. The project is not to be regarded as a mere theoretical examination, but defines itself as practical, basic research, which investigates the data processing processes of digital photography in the form of five photo-based image series and a computer-generated object. Supervised by Prof. Dr. Carolin Höfler
The series results from the investigation of the software Google Earth and shows digital modelling methods and mapping of unreal urban realities.
The aim of the series is to capture the light of a smartphone trough a broken glass screen via the exposure on analog light-sensitive material.
The Sound of Downloading Makes Me Want to Upload
In order to visualize the traces of the compression process used by Facebook, a test image is uploaded and downloaded 256 times. The result is a copy of the copy of the copy of the original image. The images show the pure traces of an extended photographic process.
Figures of Light
The sculptural work examines the paradigm of photography and its continuation as a trail of light in the digital world: Using 3D scanners, light rays are recorded and translated into digital forms, which are subsequently 3D printed. Together with Moritz Wallasch
In Conversation with Google
The work series is based on the»Google Search by Image« algorithm. It provides sometimes bizarre examples of linked images during a conversation by a human and the algorithm.
Text + Image
The series deals with the possibility of converting images into texts. Digital data is encoded as numbers, which can be transformed into different sensory forms such as graphics, color or text. Starting point of the series are the reflections of the media theorist Vilem Flusser.
