The term ‹bildings› combines the words ‹bild› (image) and ‹buildings› and characterizes Specker’s working method: on the one side, her interest in the challenges posed by combining analog and computer technologies; on the other, her concern for images and building structures. Specker photographs buildings or architectural details in order to scan and process them later: she eliminates shadows and spatial incongruities caused by depth in favor of achieving a flat structure that emphasizes the ornamental character of an architectural form.
