“I am an Artifact“ is an installation that was developed with the participation of two laboratories. Firstly, my whole body was scanned with magnet resonance imaging (MRI) to obtain digital information of my body in the department of radiology in Düsseldorf Germany. This information was used to create the work with the help of a medical imaging software, a 3D printer, a laser cutter and at least in form of manual sculpting. Secondly, my forefinger was recreated out of a material called ‘Aerogel’ at the institute of materials physics in Cologne Germany. This special material is known as the lightest solid in the world. This work has begun as a theme with the basic assumption that I am an artifact. The meaning of the artifact as something that humans have done and made, enabled me to unplug my body from nature. Another meaning of the artifact, namely, as an error or as an unexpected result in a computer system appeared on the course of the work.
