augmenting reality 2019
mdf ∙ paint ∙ foam ∙ acrylic glass ∙ steel ∙ tvs ∙ flightcase fittings
chrome plated bronze ∙ pvc sheets ∙ foil ∙ led tube
The multi-medial installation titled augmenting reality was first shown in 2019 at the annual grand exhibition of the Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg. The arrangment featured an opened freight crate, which revealed a polished chrome plated arm skeleton prothesis embedded in grey foam material on its inside. Three large TVs were framing the crate similar to a tryptch, whilst screening a looped advertisement clip engineered towards the skeleton prothesis. Final touches were added by a female voice narrating slogans over a monumental and engaging soundtrack, which added to a certain sacred atmosphere present in the chamber.

mechanical sarcophagus 2020
mdf ∙ paint ∙ carpet ∙ acrylic glass ∙ mirror ∙ stainless steel ∙ paper
graphite ∙ aluminium ∙ led tubes ∙ rubber
With a total height of 3.5m, the sculptural work named the mechanical sarcophagus presents itself as a gradually narrowing cylinder, haboring a pale and filigree drawing on its inside, which can be seen and approached through a opening on one side of the object. The installation was first shown at the exhibiton Melking Mittendrin hosted by platform München in March 2020.
The painted medium-density fibreboard structure supported two slim sheets of acrylic glass on it's inside, which directly presented the drawing on the visitors eye-level. The graphic was lit evenly from all sides through 8 led tubes, which were suspended from the ceiling and arranged in a circular pattern. On the outside the spacings in between the mdf pillars and the suspended rubber sheets acted as open gateways for the light to emit out of the structure into its surroundings. The result were symmetrically arranged shadows, which were directly cast onto the nearby objects in the sculptures environment, thus creating a link between the inside and the outside of the installation.
The clean and technical appearance of the object was complemented by custom fabricated laser cut components made of stainless steel and aluminium. To clearly distinguish the inside and the outside, a circular black carpet was fitted onto the floor. For visitors to enter the space, it was mandatory to put on single use shoe covers which could be found in a small container located nearby the entrance.
