I am a member of darktaxa-project. darktaxa-project is an international artist group which works artistically and theoretically at the interface of photography and post-photography using the new digital imaging processes such as photogrammetry, augmented reality, 3D scanning, AI, etc.
The artists participating in darktaxa-project are: Banz & Bowinkel, Julius Brauckmann, Arno Beck, Ralf Brueck, Raphael Brunk, Philipp Goldbach, Alex Grein, Beate Gütschow, Achim Mohné, Susan Morris, Johannes Post, Michael Reisch, Anna Ridler, Ria Patricia Röder, Aaron Scheer, Björn Siebert, and David Young (Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Cologne, Leipzig, London, New York).

From high-end to low-res, from artificial intelligence to digital trash, from post-photographic conditions to technosphere, from screenmemories and faithbooks, from the intrinsic self and posthumanism, from undead photography and photogrammetry, from media-reflexive social criticism and self-therapy, from Google hacks and digital détournements.
The lavishly designed artists’ book contains extensive visual material on the group’s artistic works, as well as statements, texts, chat histories, screengrabs, slogans, found footage, memes, transcribed conversations, interviews and digitally augmented pages.
