Prototype I (Möbius Strip)
Pinhole camera print on Kodak Professional Duraclear, polycarbonate strips, nylon thread, film adhesive, approx. 250 x 150 x 150 cm
In my work I retransfer photography from its conventional two-dimensional space into the third dimension. I use the form of the Möbius strip during both the exposure (in a pinhole camera) and presentation. The Möbius strip is an object without orientation, with a single side that nevertheless materially exists in space. The perspective for viewing the object can be chosen by the recipient, changing the pictorial contents by superimpositions, thus allowing for conscious and individual production of content. The photographic medium as a specific carrier of information can be regarded as an autonomous object.
I scanned the exposed film (Fuji Reala 100) and enlarged it with the help of a photo lab onto slide material (Kodak Professional Duraclear) at a size of 1 meter by 7.3 meters. Then the rectangular print was twisted accordingly into a Möbius strip. (Ole-Kristian Heyer)
