Kurt Caviezel uses the Internet as a camera. He downloads pictures from webcams to his computer. Webcams are low-resolution cameras scattered all over the globe, whose live images can be accessed via the Internet and depict the current events at the respective location. The works realized here from the series "Traffic Light" originate from traffic cams that monitor and document the flow of traffic. Depending on the series, the images are printed out using various inkjet printers and either printed as photos or transferred to hand-made paper. Depending on the point of view, they oscillate between painting and photography, smooth surface and permeable dot structure. The latest digital technology intertwines here with earlier methods of painting, especially pointillism.
