earthsky - slide installation

Laboratorium, Künstlerhaus Dortmund, 2004

The "earthsky"-picture series was developed from a collage-like combination of aerial night views of the Ruhr Area. This process created chief structures which can no longer be clearly assigned to the surface of the earth. They could as well be shots of far-off spaces of the universe - and still, all light phenomena have an electric, i.e. human origin.

The presentation of the picture series as a slide-installation is an optimal way of showing the motifs as luminous structures.
The projection onto two resp. three semi-transparent, textile layers creates a 3D scenario. The irregular movements of those layers induces a dynamic and underlines the "spheric" nature of the pictures.
