Cubist photographic experiments

Award-winning photographer Mareen Fischinger, born in 1984, calls her digital works panographics. “These are not panoramas in the normal sense,” she explains, “but more the result of a new kind of photography – one that captures the flow of time and the accompanying changes of scene on one surface.”

Her images, like that of Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, look fragmented and deformed as though taken from a superordinate perspective that can document multiple angles at one time while maintaining the same vantage point. The way in which the images stage the subject, piece together the subject like a boxy mosaic, and make reality look both new and voluminous, recalls Cubist experiments.

In fact the images are created from hundreds of individual photographs taken of one subject from the same perspective. Fischinger then manually composes the single pictures on the computer into a whole. The semi-transparent overlaps manifest the fissures and breaks as well as the process of creation. Simultaneously they lend the motif its geometric angularity and generate a Cubist effect of a wide-angled kaleidoscope.

Fischinger’s fascinating photographic experiments pick up where David Hockney’s 1980s photo collages left off. She, however, is less interested in his abstract approach; she is indebted instead to an artistic realism and thus creates her own original works.
