Luminograf #1

Christian Doeller

Installation, 2016/2018

In his installation Luminograf #1 (2016/2018), Christian Doeller deals with the translation of invisible interference between analogue and digital processes into a sensually perceptible form. The project has its origin in the search for recyclable components inside a defective stereo system. The built-in cd player leads to a seemingly simple idea: what kinds of images would be created if the player’s laser diode were used to expose light-sensitive paper? By combining his background as a photographer with diy electronics and programming, he transforms the laser, which was formerly used to read data on music cds, into a photographic exposure machine.
