The time that remains

Simone Häckel - playground

Simone Häckel's artistic interest lays within the sites, people and human actions that are beyond the visible. In her work, she examines the aspirations and dreams of humans and the state of humanity as such, beyond its outer physique. Employing documentary methods she draw topographies of desires and realities.
Häckel's photographic work Playground examines visual phenomena in contemporary youth cultures, focusing on digital heroes, such as computer characters and animated movie heroes. She created a documentation of so-called 'Cosplayers', mostly young people who dress like game characters.
In the video collage My Space , the viewer gets an insight into various realities; youth, living and bathroom. The camera glides in the slow swing through different rooms . Young people sing, dance and perform in loops - blurring the transitions of virtual and real settings.
