These manually created photomontages were created as the basis for an op-art style silkscreen series and its further development as a kinetic object.
A black square.
Lines without a vanishing point, 119 in number.
Phases of a self-portrait.
Light and dark.
Focusing and getting lost in the flickering grid.
The up and down between horizontal and vertical.
Turning on its own axis is not a movement from A to B.

The source of inspiration for this kinetic object was the Op-Art art of the 60s. As they captivated the recipients by strong contrasts, here a depth effect is created by additional movement of the graphic patterns.
The central motif is based on 5 self-portraits that were taken in profile, laterally and frontally and then assembled photographically to a picture, this is backed by a grid of lines.
