UBERMORGEN.COM: "just pixels on a screen - just ink on paper"












BANKSTATEMENTGENERATOR
by UBERMORGEN.COM


The BANKSTATEMENTGENERATOR is an online engine that generates abstract 
and very individual bank statements.

The core theme of the 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 document. Foriginals can be human or machine generated; 
Foriginals are digital or analog:

Foriginals are singular multiples.
