Out of Heidi Specker's openness and confidence in the new technical possibilities came the six large-format prints. It is a feeling of indeterminacy that RGB-Routine, 1997, has created on this trip: On the one hand, one is confronted with photographs of powerful showpieces of the big city: a residential tower, a bank, a department store, a hotel, an office building. On the other hand, the city dominants are reminiscent of dominoes or Lego towers, models that could easily be transplanted onto the Monopoly board. The drifting of the towers into the unreal and playful
is brought out by Specker's work with the blur filter and testing of new technology. Inevitably, you taste the 1990s, early computer graphics or CD covers.
