Alexander Kadow’s series of works ‘Setup with scanner and mirror (ED.II), shows seemingly abstract, photographic light sculptures. In the process, phenomena that are invisible to the human eye under normal circumstances, such as the individual elements of the spectrum of light, the heat and the interpretation by technical devices, were captured and interpreted.

The basis are mirror surfaces, which are thermally deformed and then digitized in a scanning process. The colored surfaces and distortions only arise in the interplay between the light emitted by the scanner, the three-dimensional mirror objects and the interpretation by the software. The mirrors then show a trace, an index, of the heat the light and the interpretation process.
