Reconstruction of a Catastrophe
Reconstruction of a Catastrophe recreates a scene that shows the moment after a catastrophic event. A narrative that describes the consequences of a destructive force.
The installation exhibits a diorama (scale model) of a disaster, where the amount of dead bodies keeps on increasing throughout the exhibition period. The body of the spectator is scanned, and a digital 3D model of the spectator is used as a mould for a miniaturized, printed, version of one of the many corpses in the miniature. The more visitors, the bigger the catastrophe.
The installation is developed during the graduation year at the FMI Masters, department of Interactive Media and Evironments, and presented at the graduation exhibition in July 2011
