25 lightjet prints behind acrylic glass on an aluminium shelf, each 20cm x 30cm
"Setup with scanner and mirror, 2020" consists of a total of 25 images that were created by scanning a mirror in a flatbed scanner. In 1° steps, the angle of the mirror was adjusted from -12° to 12°. The light, which the scanner uses for the illumination of reflective originals, is refracted by the glass of the mirror and reflected to the scanner in individual, coloured components.
Both elements are normally intended to be neutral and „invisible“ in a sense that they shouldn’t reveal itself in processes.
The software translates the information into a visual outcome, which looks on the first sight as the natural spectrum of light, but reveals little errors and limits of this digital translation and therefor reveals a doubt of the photographic capabilities to show us reality.
