The PAN-RAMA Picture


Having developed a simple method for spontaneously composing images for the Hakenovsky’s Little Nap (1999) installation, by cutting 35mm slides and stapling them together with paper staples into different arrangements, I was able to work with visual material and create new mass-produced images directly without digital intervention. In The PAN-RAMA Picture, a slide taken of a lake landscape, the Aggertalsperre east of Cologne, seen through defoliated tree branches, was reproduced 24 times and stapled together to form a larger image of  interlocking yin-yang heads, a new pattern inconspicuously held together by its own composite veil of staples.
