Equipped with, what he calls an experimental 360°camera selfie–device, the artist documented himself getting lost in the Atacama Desert, strolling through the intensity of heat, walking without orientation on our planets curviture. The camera's technical effect triggers what Kiessling calls an inverted self-perception: The moment he jumps up, his position in the frame remains still, everything else moves; The moment he turns, the figure in the frame remains in position while the whole world around him revolves.
No up no down no direction in space.
