Roman Signer «Moonflight» 2002.


Signer's works are infused with a humorous, yet mysterious air. For example, the work Moonflight is an installation that includes a large, circular map of the moon placed flat on the floor. On top of it is a model helicopter. Projected onto the adjacent wall is a bird's-eye view over the surface of the moon. What is one to make out of these seemingly unrelated elements? Upon a closer look, one will realize that the helicopter carries a small spy-camera and so as the helicopter slowly hovers over the moon-map, it records small areas of the moon.
