Sliced using the brute force of an old band saw before being meticulously polished, reassembled and embedded in resin, the cameras used for Fabian Oefner’s CutUp are given a new life. In a bid to change the way that we view art, Oefner transforms the tools into the art itself through a process of destruction and reassembly.
The process used for CutUp is, much like the final product, characterised by contrast. The destruction is done using an old band saw which lacks precision and sophistication. After the cameras have been successfully divided into sections, Oefner hand polishes each slice and reassembles it. On the other side of the sophistication spectrum is the technique used to hold each slice in place: a vacuum and pressure chambers are used to cure the resin around the embedded object at a precise atmospheric pressure and temperature.
