“The works were created by exposing negative film strips to the impact of temperature and then shortly to light (without a camera), in other words, by a chemical, material reaction. The photographic material here is not a representation of something else; it is not a medium anymore but a pure physically present body. […] The film reacts to the particular temperature, in other words, it shows it as a kind of a measuring instrument. The work deals with these ideas – how does a physical effect of one body on another create an image?” (Ulrike Königshofer)
