The exemplary landscapes, composed of fragmented and reassembled facial parts of the artist, decontextualize her physical presence and turn it into an ongoing process of disintegration without beginning or end.

The basic idea of the series focuses primarily on the tensions between possession and freedom, repetition and singularity. Through the extreme fragmentation of her body, Seeger consciously plays with the notion of collectability. The buyer can now acquire a terrain or fragment of the artist and thus, own her. The material and immaterial identity is crushed, distributed and circulated until it develops a life of its own. Through the use of Blockchain, the owner also becomes a part of Seeger’s terrain. It is about the sale and trade of and with data, generated by Seeger and further developed through other points of encounters.

Seeger attempts to turn personal experiences and her identity into the apparent “possession” of the other.

In order to create democratic access and transparency of knowledge, Seeger produces her work exclusively on her iPhone. It enables a direct, immediate exchange and production process. As a result, Seeger becomes entangled in a process while she is still creating. For her, this series serves as an ironic reflection of her personal experience during the creative process, finding its expression in numerous elements of the artwork. Humorous accounts, but also accessible techniques provide the impact of “Facescapes 01, 02”.
