Formales Gewissen (2013) represents the end of the trilogy begun by Dialogischer Abrieb (2011) and continued in Vororte der Körper (2012), in which Yves Netzhammer studied possible forms of interaction between human beings and their environment. As proxies for us individuals, doll-like figures move through associative spaces, laboratories, in which different levels of reality intermingle and rearrange themselves. Poetic moments of contemplation alternate with nightmarish scenarios of isolation and loneliness. Attempts at communication and coming together fail because of their inherent impossibility.
