The results are still life and close-up images of collisions that show traces of usage and the outcome of an event. Thereby the photographic medium is crucial, because it is tracking time by representing a crop of reality. Cars – like many other technical objects – are both objects of utility and objects of desire. A combination of advertisement, fetish and consumerism.

The car crash is the sum of these aspects. SHAPE SHIFTER encounters it with a direct, analytical approach and from a close, abstract perspective.
