Constellation | projection machine | 2017

Constellation is a lifelong project and consists of a collection of 16mm films, found stones as projection objects and a self-developed projection machine. With analog 16mm films I create 360° scans of human heads and in this way build an archive of contemporaries and friends.  

Displayed in the ring shaped projection machine, a portrait circles around its physical counterpart, a found stone, that is placed in the center of the machine. Like a satellite system, the projection machine shields the inner gravitational field from the outer space. One has to look through the machine to witness the fragile interplay of nature and technology to find the analog hologram of a flickering human head.
