Auftritt und Abgang von Mascha B.

experimental documentary, 14 min., 2020

Auftritt und Abgang von Mascha B. (Entrance and Exit of Mascha B.) follows a young woman through a digital transformation process.
In the premises of a big architectural visualization company, delicate operations give rise to a photorealistic rendering that is to promote a yet-to-be-built office space. For that, Mascha B. gets 3D-scanned, processed and retouched digitally. The virtual office room is furnished and inhabited by Mascha B. and digital colleagues. The final rendering process is accompanied by the aria from the 1881 fantastic opera The Tales of Hoffmann, in which the hero hopelessly falls in love with the mechanical puppet Olympia.
