Between || US (The Distance)
I have started the project Between || US (The Distance) beginning 2015 after my return from Iran. A trip through a country that shows many specific features especially for us women. My yellow raincoat which I had packed into my luggage was my outfit during the whole trip and gave occasion to many discussions. The first part of my project originated immediately after my return. A crowd of women in black uniforms, no individuality admitted, has left a deep impression and led me to the creation of this photo project.
With the distance the faces more and more faded. What remains are the material covers. Replicable as a pre-printed stamp. In the second part of my project I realize with my team an experimental short. I add to the abstracted use of  the material covers two more levels; music (Danilo Nonni) and movement (camera Jakob Pfaundler). A sensual bridge between the cultures.  In the third part of my project Between || US (The Distance) I drive the abstraction forward. I internalize more and more the dissolution of the figures. During my creative process I realised that not only in their world but also in our world we are confronted with more and more faceless faces. The digital painting is the right tool for this process. I can express my emotional state with a single stroke.
My artistic approach to this issue is not yet complete.
