Constellation | projection machine | 2017

Constellation is a long-term project and consists of a series of 16mm films, found stones and a self developed projection machine. Using analog film as a medium to generate 360° scans I portray friends and fellows to build up a life lasting archive of companions.   

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, virtuality and technological enthusiasm to find the analog hologram of a flickering human head.
