Kontaktschmelze (contact fusion) is the first work using our concept of the ‘boolean camera’. To make use of 3d cg space in a uniquely digital way, space is not cut by a projection of a plane onto a 2d screen anymore: instead, we ‘look’ through the cutting shape of a 3d object to realise the shape of another.
It also employs a remix concept that could be called ‘database modeling’: no modeling has been done, all 3d objects have been downloaded from free resources on the web.
