»We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep …«
(Prospero, The Tempest, Act 4, Scene 1)

WE ARE SUCH STUFF AS DREAMS ARE MADE ON

Each of these magical dream-like pictures visualizes a particular theme – be it an opera, a play or a broader topic of the Salzburg Festival 2016. Photos of textures and structures provide the starting point, are the associative stage for the abstract artistic collages. Each collage is based on photographs only. In a complex process various pictures are digitally composed to achieve the desired effects and the picturesque character. In doing so, the data from the camera are the modeling clay these pictures are created of. The pictures of the Leica photographer Robert Mertens are published in the Salzburg Festival Programme 2016, in a circulation of about 70.000 copies worldwide.

Make of our hearts one heart,
Make of our vows one last vow:
Only death will part us now.«
