"Line lasers are employed in Annika Hippler's current luminograms; their focused light is projected past moving surfaces of water onto black-and-white photographic paper. Similar to her 2012 light installation "Schwingungen" [Oscillations], in which a falling drop animates the horizontal projection, a reflection comes about that causes a relationship to appear between light ray and water surface: all turbulences are also carried over to the reflection on the wall." (...)

"Annika Hippler makes use of laser in a purely analogue process. Nothing is digitalized or computerized. She very consciously employs the most up-to-date light modules that the digital age has to offer in an outdated darkroom featuring photographic developer, stop bath, and fixative. The reflection greatly enlarges the fine undulations in the water basin, completely filling the in part large-format photographic paper. Laszlo Moholy-Nagy already made use of this phenomenon to the extent that his relatively handy "Light-Space Modulator" was able to fill whole rooms with his spectacular shadow formations." (...)

"The turbulences or bows and loops of light (and shadow) also recall wind-tunnel simulations; textiles and fabrics in the wind or in the interplay with human body forms, sculptural objects between torso and design-Haute Couture. Their immediate effect resembles physical investigations of thermodynamics or from the field of biology in which the invisible enters into the realm of the perceptible. The analytical proves and undermines the normative force of the factual. Sometimes on matt paper, sometimes on high gloss paper, in varying degrees of hardness. Annika Hippler's works are rhythmic, hypnotic compositions of space and image, embedded in a gentle trance whose spatial boundaries are first precisely defined, then completely dissolved chemically and, proportioned for the human eye, visually expanded into infinity."
