The series The Inhabitants is the result of a hybrid production process, at the cross-roads of architecture, sculpture and photography. These images – two-dimensional renderings drawn from 3D virtual space—initially take shape in a space modeled by the artist with the aid of computer software. Kamm then, using virtual tools, sculpts figures based on a texture that he has previously “harvested” with the camera from his physical environment. Once the figures have been shaped, the software—simulating the tools of photography—permits the artist to choose an angle and to adjust, from a practically unlimited spectrum of possibilities, his light sources, his focus, his aperture, etc. Kamm’s figures, vaguely anthropomorphic, appear as intermediaries between the real and immaterial worlds. The reductive character, the unclassifiable nature of these images turns them into vectors of inchoate narratives, carriers of a potential meaning which has yet to be defined and which remains mysterious, opening a void that we are invited to fill.
