sculptures, 2009 – 2011
This group of four sculptures are based on drawings from the survey of the ISF – Institut für sozio-ästhetische Feldforschung Berlin – a field research since 2001 about the future of the human body. The sculptures are created as a first conclusion. They are defined by their phenotypical classifications based on the drawings. Always two images are digitally crossed through a morphing program and become a hybrid drawing. (please see video installation ISF – Hybrid Figures). These intersections of two drawings configure the base for modelling a group of sculptures, each originating from a hybrid image.
The shiny chrome surface of the sculptures reflect the movements of the audience as well as light and shadow, their chromium-plated surfaces convey the temporary tentativeness of a firm state.
