Photoboothautograph, 38 two-image-videoloops, 38 monitors and projectors (installation: Künstlerhaus Passagengalerie, solo show curated by Ursula Maria Probst, Vienna, 2009)
Invented 1865 by Felicitas Zopp, the innovative technology and astonishing capability of the Photoboothautograph were quickly recognised. A patent was granted the same year. For a short period in 1866 a Photoboothautograph was installed as an attraction in the famous Vienna Prater fair grounds. But shortly afterward the technology was declared a state secret and thus fell into oblivion. Recently, the Photoboothautograph and its unique potential for replication, repetition and self-fragmentation was rediscovered in the Austrian State Archive and updated using latest digital technology. From 20 March until 12 April  the prototype tested by Marlene Haring [was] presented to the public at Passagegalerie, Künstlerhaus, Vienna, Austria.
