A multitude of animals brought together in a rhythmical sequence of photographs. The images blend together similar to the cross breeding of animals. An accumulation of bygone days, captured in photos, in which the animals are variable, but the same employees frequently reappear. Months of studies and experiments on animals are reduced to a few images a second, the outcome is tangible or remains mysterious. Seeing is comparing; discovering similarities or differences, seeking for an ideal, gratification of curiosity, optimisingutilisation. ‘Alles was IrgendwieNützt’ is a work based on the historical glass plate photograph collection ‘Julius Kühn’ of the Martin-Luther University Halle-Wittenberg.
