Constellation by Nils Benedikt Fischer

The inability to comprehend the complexity of our world if not through a look into the face of others is one of the underlying ideas for the work Constellation, in which 16mm films are used as 360° scans to create portraits of friends and companions, thus building a personal archive of confidants. Displayed in a 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 on orbital tracks, the projection machine divides outer space and inner gravitation field. One has to look through the machine to witness the fragile interplay of nature, virtuality and technological enthusiasm in order to find the analog hologram of a flickering human head.
