Michael Wirthig, »INSIDE – R3«, 2009

35 mm, 2’

 
Nowadays it is hard to conceive life without the benefits of technology. We use a vast number of appliances and gadgets; we know how to get the results we want from them but we only know their outsides. Our access to them is usually confined to making the best possible use of their functions.

However, if you take a closer look at such an appliance or apparatus, the question of what it’s like inside arises. This is why Michael Wirthig has launched a project to dissect the hidden world of a number of different appliances and turning them inside out. An analogue Leica R3 single-lens reflex camera was dismantled until there was nothing left to take apart. All the connections that constituted the original object and its functioning were separated from each other and laid out horizontally in an orderly arrangement. The components were photographed using a 35 mm camera, which resulted in twenty frames picturing the camera itself. These were glued together to produce a two-minute film. The projection of the film converts the photographic stills into newly coded moving images..
