The installation "My great heroes" reflects upon the vast progression of the digitization of our society in combination with the "classics" of film history. People from all ages all over the world are now able share a "digital" memory that connects them without any borders.

In these installations nine different screens are mounted. Each one of them symbolizes a multitude of personalities and memories merged with scenes from well-known movies. But those scenes have been so strongly alienated with digital effects that it is now creating an experience that gives new and collective memories of old-time movies.

In the effort to combine the future with its past, the effect of hologram-like stylistically was used. The mixture of hologram-like effects stands in stark contrast to the old video cassette style look from the 80's and is therefore showcasing the huge contrast of the two different time periods. The goal was to create a back and forth between these two worlds of the future and the past creating unity within each other and each frame in every second.
