2014 Ernas Rückkehr

Public Space Video Installation
Commissioned by the Gemeinde Neunkirch

Generative video synthesis, rear projection video installation.
duration: 40:00

Realized under the artistic direction of Jana Honegger, the video projection leverages proprietary video synthesis and is comprised of photographic portraits of female residents of Neunkirch, female masks created by the local theatre fan and hobby mask maker Heinrich Pestalozzi, and of various architectoral details of historic Neunkirch.

The projekt “Ernas Rückkehr” is primarily a community art project. The portraits of local Neunkirch women (ranging from 7 months to 98 years old) are largely created under their own direction. The contrast between traditional motifs and top modern technology is deliberate. Local people as well visitors may experience the local virtues through high-end video synthesis literally in a new light.
