Der Wald Voller Bäume, 2005
The installation »Der Wald voller Bäume« (The wood full of trees) is the result of first-hand perception, perception through the camera, and their back-translation into three dimensions. The spatial tableau is narrative in structure, albeit without actually relating a story. The eye meets perspectives, foreshortenings, sections and reflections – characteristics displayed by perception in the everyday and in the media view of the world. The question is how we see, what we recognise, how we interpret what we see, and to what extent we now experience the media in reality.

Failing Fox, 2004
The video »horror vacui e-scape« is screened in the exhibition room of the Kunstpavillon parallel to the intervention in the Hofgarten. The monitor is positioned right next to the window so that it can be watched from outside. If you turn your eye away from the monitor by ninety degrees, you find yourself facing a perspective view. The white surface is the result of a projection and serves as a quotation. The film only plays in the viewer's imagination and the newly defined space is available for a performative exploration.
