ENTRANCE AND EXIT OF MASCHA B.
AUFTRITT UND ABGANG VON MASCHA B.
Germany, 2020, 14′
The film 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. 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 fantastic opera The Tales of Hoffmann, in which the hero hopelessly falls in love with the mechanical puppet Olympia.
