Kathrin Ganser’s works deal with the relationship between image space and spatial image, their connotations and aesthetic appearances. In addition to expanding the photographic image into space, she examines forms of representation of the mediatized world, its stratifications and hidden power structures. She works across media and installations, primarily with photographic material. Her work “Digital Ruins” (started in 2018) focuses on questions of perception, digital aesthetics and image cultures of our built and virtual environment. She works with image material from Google Earth and translates it into location-based image archives and photographic installations. Her work examines the relations of body and space, translation ratios of the planar into space as well as transition phenomena, the artist works with a cross-media authorship on new aesthetics.
