Masterthesis |  2021


This Project  discusses the boundaries of paintings, animation and abstraction. Additionally, the usage of analogous and digital material respectively the fusion of space and virtuality are addressed. To do so, the mentioned components are merged to an immersive audio-visual project work in a multi-layered concept. This enables the researcher to answer the central research question ‘How can paintings be translated respectively integrated into three-dimensional space?’. Herein, the focus is not only on the artisanal and visual characteristics of the paintings, but also on the emotions triggered in recipients. Paintings and moods are as linked as they can be. While the individual brushstroke acts as the cornerstone of paintings, different moods are based on a variety of hormones. To give an example, adrenalin triggers other emotions in a recipient than melatonin does, with the same being true for serotonin and oxytocin. In order to explore these ramifications further, the practical part of this thesis, titled ‘Fluidum’, deals with the visualisation of these moods through immersive paintings. Herein, each of the four immersive virtual paintings are dedicated to one hormone, which is transmitted to the recipient in mood, animation, sound and composition. Creative and conceptional bases of decisions are established via a scientific investigation covering historic, technical and cultural aspects in art, design, computer graphics and immersive mediums.
