The video work Surface Glaze deals with the dissolution of human bodies and their occupation by prostheses and parasites. For this purpose an aesthetic is used which links to consumer - and advertising industry: Extreme close and slow-motion shots unite fungal, blemishes and scale skin, hair, mouths and eyes to an indefinable new monstrous body. By exploiting the technology of consumer industry values as uniqueness and Individuality become immanent. The commercial imagery is appropriated and reinterpreted that makes Surface Glaze so seductive as it is disturbing.
