The work fünfnullplus from the series Lichtbilder seems at first sight to be a monochrome painting. In the glossy, translucent body of the image, a vertical bar of white LEDs is inserted; it generates words that seem to hover in the surrounding space for fractions of a second.
The approximately 100 terms chosen for the work – "achievement", "unpaid", "family", "care", "security", "deficits", to name just a few – outline the deregulation of economy and society, and in particular the situation of women over the age of 50 on the labour market.
Visual perception thus becomes a metaphor for the non-visibility of the statistic data and investigations that the selection of the terms is based on.
