The SCHAUKASTEN series (the DISPLAY CASE serial)

Schaukasten (display case) is a hub for spreading informations. Nomen est omen what means in this case the video is about what photographic images and enhancement software makes out of what a camera shooting is able to present to the audience.

Photographic images are determined by a high level of additional information compared to, e.g. paintings or other forms of representation.






SCHAUKASTEN serial: STREET B, 2012 - 2019, 1min 17sec excerpt


“Since quite a while I am working on the issue of smallest creature, e.g. insects, butterflies, birds. I have had other issues before, too.
One big one was the visual impact that a metropole has on its citizens and visitors.
My video work always depends on where I am living. I have been living in the most part of my life in big cities like Hamburg or Berlin. Five years ago, I moved to a small town in Southwest Germany close to the French and Swiss border.
Since i am living-so to speak -at the countryside and my interest has shifted to nature and here especially to the smallest creatures, insects and birds.
Later it turned out (to be exact: this year) that insects and birds are facing among other species the greatest extinction since the death of dinosaurs hundred thousands of years ago. I read in a newspaper article the unbelievable number of 1500 species of birds only!
That was more than enough reason to continue with my issue. There was another drive to readopt the issue of birds on which I had worked before.
During the time I was living in Berlin, I used to be awfully fascinated by the different species and the mass of birds that came year after year to Berlin in order to stay the summer between the endless streets surrounded by endless multi storey buildings.
Why do birds come to at least for them to such a hostile place like this...?”
