Trust III
Frankfurt, 2010

„Trust“ is an installation of mirrored lenses, which constitutes the “Braille code” in a visual form. Trust in one’s own perception is of special importance in my installations. The flood of images in the media has changed our perception of images and the trust in the “truth” of these images. These lenses, which were originally supposed to sharpen our vision, have lost their transparency through the silvering process. Even if they mirror our environment, they can only reveal fragments of our surroundings.

A further development of this project is a video with images, taken by the blind Parisian Laurance Jamet, which are being projected onto the mirrored lenses. While a blind could Sense the words - a seeing person is being questioned about his perception, through the Translation into a new form of perception - new codes, new images are created. The original perception (the smells or the sounds, which have inspired the blind photographer to take the picture, can only be guessed at in the distorted reflection on the wall.
