The work “Haltung” shows a digitally rendered avatar that resembles the artist and seems to move slightly. The avatar has been animated through small facial movements such as a blink or the slight opening of the mouth.
These movements are based on the artists own facial expressions that she captured using face-tracking software. The avatar keeps a watch over the space in which it is installed. It serves as a digital representation of the artist not being physically present. It faces the observer as the observer faces the avatar.
