The creation of Edition Immersion VII (10) can be divided into 9 different actions taken on the paper, defined as single complex layers:
- the dying of the whole sheet of paper by bathing in in scarlet red ink. The choice of color represents an enlightened athmosphere.
- The drawing on a non-neutral surface (colored instead of white) serves an inner centering.
- The whole sheet is covered with foil. A scalpel is used to cut an intuitive form into the foil. It is called a torus or dont. This mathematical shape has the characteristics of a 3-dimensional shape, where the inside is also the outside. It is also the prototype of the human body and a modell of the universe. The philosopher Lacan used such a model to explain his theorie of human desire (Le sujet désirant).
- Color pigments are rubbed onto the shape, creating a half-spatial impression. Since the rest of the sheet is covered in foil, the rest of the image remains untouched by this. After, the foil is completely removed from the paper.
- The motiv is further worked on with color-strokes using pencils, as a rythmic intervention, structuring the whole image.
- Arrows and inscriptions create the level of notations. The elements are put in motion and are also variable in size.
- By adding „now-lines“, paths through the this thinking-model are created, implying and testing different readings.
- A horizon is added to the work, suggesting different possible viewing angles and defining visible and invisible sections of the work.
- Lastly, by adding an aluminum tarsia weaving itself from left to right through the image, the layers are re-organized and the different subjects of the work are emphasized.
