videostill „ab tasten“, 2020
In the video, ab tasten, by Maximiliane Leni Armann feet wander through digital space in order to capture proportions. Skin and the simulation of touch. A getting acquainted. The history of these spaces only emerges through movement, through the processes … The video work, ab tasten, shows the recalibration of digital space, negotiates the impossibility of haptic experience of virtual surfaces and structures as well as the relationship between space and perception itself … In ab tasten pictorial space is structured as an open-ended timeline without a narrative pathway, without a linearity that might be followed. (Ada Karlbauer).
