13 screen panels form a half of a panoramic view with the image surface facing outwards. This work was specially made for the rooms of the Kressmann Hall. Tattoos are shown on the inside, which were documented by means of a 3D scanner, directly after being inserted into the skin. The video consists of a series of camera shots through the inside of the scans. The individual camera movements are shown on an iPad, which is strapped in a frame in the form of a flounder. The visual worlds of the screens narratively refer to interactions of two- and three-dimensionality and invite the viewer to walk around the installation. The extremely high formats of the individual screen panels force one into an unusual interaction with the perspectives, vanishing points and compositions.
