Looking into the office server of nightnurse images, one finds a folder named "testrender", a digital dumpster containing virtual models of imagined enviroments. The data contained in each file describes the precise arrangement of objects, mathematical calculations of lights, properties of materials and many more layers of information that constitute the content necessary to create a convincing visual representation of commissioned projects. As files pile up, the amount of data gets bigger, cheap and disposable as it may be, takes up space, clogs up data channels and must thus be maintained and cleaned up on a regular basis.
Relics is based on a small set salvaged from this temporary storage. The models - built and used for architectural projects earlier this year - are discarded by-products of an all digital production process. Taken out of context and stripped of their charactersitic materials, the projects are cast in homogeneity, questioning the way architecture is visually represented on many platforms from local competitions to entertainment industry.
The same data is used to produce the five images, by re-articulating and combining differnet elements in the digital image production process, from multi-dimensional coordinate data to color and pixel values. The following set of digital operations were performed on the data:
Redesign of the Area Hotel Intercontinental, Wiener Eislaufverein, Wiener Konzerthaus. For some time now we have been able to accompany the project www.heumarkt-neu.at with visualisations, planned by Isay Weinfeld and Sebastian Murr for a prominent site in Vienna.

Elmiger Architekten, 16.135
On the Maettivor field, directly beneath the famous two Swiss mountains called "Grosser und Kleiner Mythen" is this modern project located, composed of appartements and villas for sale. The first images for this projects were created in 2012 for the competition, which was won by Elmiger Tschuppert Architecs. The CIMAG AG started with the marketing of the projects and we realised a marketing movie in 2016.
The project "Opale", designed by Lacaton & Vassal Architects/Paris and developed by SBB Immobilien, is located directly at the newly designed Chêne-Bourg railway station in Geneva. The high transparency and multi-layering of the building with external balconies, which include glass sliding elements as well as sun protection blinds in various colors, add to the appeal of the buildings and the difficulty to portray them.
The Technorama Park in Winterthur, Switzerland is designed as an experimental landscape with combination of areas for experiencing nature and technical phenomenons and relaxation. The landscape in the images was created almost completely in photoshop, while most of the exhibits are modelled and rendered.
