Hansel is a disillusion apparatus. A wooden crafted backpack.
Inside there are a camera, a raspberry pi and a thermal printer.
The camera takes an image which is printed immediately afterwards and falls out of the backpack.

The operator thus does not have the chance to look at the images before they are printed - censorship is not possible. Self-control which is typical for publishing ideal images is abolished.
Ideal images show on the one hand how you see yourself and on the other hand how to be seen by others. In other words they show a distorted - ideal - version of the self. Such images can for example be found on the Internet: Only after a lengthy process of selection and retouching the image is finally ready for being published.

The apparatus produces portraits: non-stop, in any situation, brutally frank. These inflationary images are traces, like breadcrumbs on the spot and point out: He - the operator - was there!
