Fehlstörung Mensch (Human)

Fehlstörung is a triggered impulse with the aim to regulate an action by the sender but instead becomes misinterpreted by the recipient. Consequently the outcome can be seen as either a negative feedback in the view of the sender. By contrast the recipient might view it with a positive outlook or vice versa.

Fehlstörung Mensch (Human) is about the notion of visual triggers within the medium of photography, which causes a 'fehlstörung'. We all have anchored in our mind a set of visual memories, which can incite a contrasting reaction.

In using the setting of the body within the genre of self-portrait, my performances are representing a process that is working around the notion of activating a 'fehlstörung' within the ambiance of the photographed image.

The image evolves from being an interpretation of myself as a 'fehlstörung' to being a another one by……. (You).
