two photographic murals: photo print on glass, 2,5 x 17,6 m and 12 x 3,7 m

Out of the contextually urban quality of the site and the cool, so far non-chromatic appearance of the architecture, an existing work of Thomas Huber (downtown huabacity) was chosen to be model for extreme macro photographs.
The angle of view in the longish piece in the entrance hall of the building refers to the unique aspect of the city of Innsbruck: the high mountains here are incomparable close to an urban city center, which allows the citizen to think about a ‘normal’ view from diagonal above and not of an artificial ‘bird’s eye view’.
Out of the same original, one tower building was selected as an appropriate detail to become the motive for the 5-storey mural in the staircase – another step in scale. The model detail is enlarged here in factor 620!

On 20 glass panels a section-photograph of an Inn-wave is printed, which ascending to the right, antagonizes the architectural topology.
In collaboration with the Hydrographic Institute Tirol a subsoil water-camera was developed for this unique use in a wild and milky alpine river and installed in the river Inn.
It broadcasts through the internet to a monitor in the building. Later it was shown in a window of the gauge computing centre next to the river.
Although the underwater scenery is lit by a LED, the cloudy water mainly allows very atmospheric, abstract pictures.
The concept-phase took place before the bank-crisis 2008. In this light the work requires a certain precognitive quality - by the end of 2008, the financial service providers “were in deep water“.

Three works of art, dealing with the theme of exchange of values, expend from the basement to the first floor:
The gate of the vault space in the basement is staged like a ‘treasure chamber’s gate’. The panels of glass show macros of security features, each superimposed in two layers: the texture of a fingerprint and of a banknote, backlit by LED. The Installation is modeled on the UV- checking device for banknotes.
On ground floor ranges over 25 meters a macroscopic print on glass revealing the edge of a 1 euro coin, appearing in its enlargement in the factor of 1500 rather archaically imprecise, as the embossed metal has abrasions, patina and the impureness of coinage.
58 meters of glass dividing walls in the first floor are printed with a digital abstraction of money. Source codes of charts of exchange rates in the worldwide web were chosen in accordant languages and fonts. The delineation consists of the quotations of the euro to the currencies of USA, Japan, UK, Russia, China, India and Saudi-Arabia within the period of the last 5 years.
