BANKSTATEMENTGENERATOR
UBERMORGEN.COM

The "BANKSTATEMENTGENERATOR" is an online engine - embodied in the form of a white tower, a white cube ATM-Machine - that generates individual bank statements. If you need a absurde positive or negative bank statement, generate it.

The core theme of this project is described in the slogan "just pixels on a screen - just ink on paper" and consolidated in the term "authenticity as consensual hallucination" (Inke Arns). The focus shifts from the authenticity in the time of analogue / technical reproduction (signature) towards authenticity in the time of informational reprogramability (automatically generated bank-statements).

In the UBERMORGEN.COM universe, this project can be seen in the tradition of "Legal Art" and specifically the "[F]originals - forged original documents - series. A Foriginal is always original and unique. Foriginals are pixels on screens or substance on material [i.e. ink on paper]. [F]originals are non pragmatic - they are absurd. They do not tell you whether they are real or forged - there is no original but also no fully forged / faked document. Foriginals can be human or machine generated; Foriginals are digital or analogue, [F]originals are singular multiples.
