2003 Medienspiritismus. Videokabinet

In collaboration with Moritz Mattern and Wolfgang Münch

Numberous 3D animated portraits of technologically and psychoanalytically minded scientists as well as their dead forebears Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan, Marshall McLuhan, André Leroi-Gourhan, and others, gather in the nothingness of “Behindthescreenland”. This meeting is called “MedienSpiritismus, VideoKabinet”.

The synthetic representations of these scientists look more natural than nature. Portraits numinously enter the projection, and, thanks to the invention of Wolfgang Muench, are moved by the performative witch shadow instead
of the mouse. Tsunamis, thunderstorms, as well as some invented nature phenomena of the theory are presented as a spiritistic weather report.
