Robert F. Hammerstiel's "Instant Vacations I" (2007 – 2010)
Born in 1957 in Pottschach, Austria Robert F. Hammerstiel lives and works in Vienna.
"The series of images Instant Vacations I relates to the online computer game "Second Life". This is a game which offers an opportunity to build up a second existence, a new life as an avatar* in a virtual world. In the game, every standard option for planning a house and a life is viable; it opens up numerous alternative options for playing on projected surfaces. Thus, regular everyday situations are frequently experienced and life partnerships are established." (Robert F. Hammerstiel)
