In the series „Meereskugel (Ocean globe)“ – as in her video films she started to make in 1999 – Ingeborg Lüscher chose to take that part of the director. Perhaps the more distanced position of the director – as she heartlessly abandons the sulphur-yellow Meereskugel to the mercy of the breakers – also allows her to select the most meaningful images. Whatever the case, the photographs that result from that game prove to be profoundly affecting metaphors.
