Alptraum

„In my work I employ the medium of photography to investigate the ambiguity of manmade spaces and landscapes.
One of the greatest concerns of our age is climate change. Glaciers worldwide are losing an average of 75 centimetres
of their ice-thickness per year. Due to human-driven global warming, the glacier ice is melting faster and faster.
To slow down the acceleration of this irreversible melting process, during the summer glaciers in the Alps are being covered
with reflective material. For the realisation of the series “Alptraum” I applied the technique of ‘reclaiming negatives’.
In this specific way of working, I take photos with a Polaroid camera and “rescue” the negative from disappearing,
which means I transform the subject from a photographic context into a content-related dimension of my work.”
