Research Context: From the mimetic moment to a mental matrix as a dynamic, interactive field of links between the layers and forces within the image. Within a contemporary context I am of the opinion that representations with respect to reality can only be read as a complex structure of symbols and interactions between layers of meaning, variable dimensions, mental connections, changing medium properties, etc., as well as mutual relationships that in theory are always liable to change. Blueprint for artistic research This piece of artistic research endeavours to uncover and describe unknown parameters in images along with existing parameters in order to study specifically their interaction and experimental interplay. Analysis of the image from the intersecting lines and the intersections between the image layers (connections) is therefore attempted in various ways (formally, experimentally, semiotically, philosophically, etc.) in order to get into the ‘intermediate area’ of indirect, conscious and subconscious image elements so their narrative can be approached as a new force. Moreover, the elements outside the image (surroundings, carrier material, frame, splits, etc.) and the specific medium properties (e.g. the grammar of photography compared to painting) will play a specific role in this matrix. The interchange between the different variables and the perception of the whole is brought together in a matrix that becomes the breeding ground for new links. A unique image analysis model can emerge from this, but will mainly function as a concept within a new image-consciousness in order to stimulate the evolution of cross-fertilization between associations, perceptions, external factors and connotations. There is still an influence on all of this from our connecting powers of imagination and our constantly projected viewing behaviour. This way we are able to make the incomprehensible image clearer so that with this knowledge we can enter into deeper regions as an artistically new environment.
Description: In my own individual artistic work and research, I -as a captor of impressions and as an archivist of memories-, often start out from the images that I gather around me (photographs, 8 mm films, slides, etc.). Many of these treasured keepsakes are confined to our cakeboxes and risk to become lost relics of a pre-digital era. But there is more. Their historical importance as holders of memories for the protagonists in the picture will, in time, be replaced by interpretations of strangers to these pictures ‘inventing’ new stories. Daily life takes its own path without any historical awareness. I am attempting to reverse this, from this multiple body of thought that old pictures enclose attempt to change a fundamental doubt about the original image into a new opportunity to approach reality.
