The Riddle of the Pudelsphinx

2015, plate transmission hologram, 30 x 40cm, aluminium, acrylic glass, frame 65 x 85 cm — edition of 2

This plate transmission hologram shows a zoomorphic mineral made of quartz, pyrite and calcite. The hologram is installed at the doorway between two exhibition rooms, as a Sphinx that crosses the visitors’ path. Different lasers make the motif visible according to predefined cycles and create a narrative, which deploys itself across different exhibition rooms.
