Work from his oeuvre.
“I am photographing constructed objects made of different materials, such as paper cuts, prints, foil, paint, metal, wood etc. On top of that I project digital generated light which is mapped in realtime on the objects and the scene. At some point the digital process and the materials visually merge into each other. They meet in the same space, but actually remain completely separated things. In this sense, one could say, that Marx’s concept of ‘Doppelcharakter’ or Fetish constitutes itself in the moment of congruence and superposition of diametric opposites. The computer, on the other hand, is the only medium which makes it possible to simulate, automate and temporarily overcome such contradictions. The Turing Machine can be seen as the administrative machinery of the paradox. I believe that’s why it is so successful.” – Frank Eickhoff
