The photographic series „artificial reality“ is about Sabine, a woman who owns a puppet that looks like a real baby. These six photographs show the limits and possibilities of affection and unanswered love.  The artificiality and authenticity at the same time makes us feel loving and caring even if the counterpart is not able to respond to any emotional reaction. Having a puppet is an opportunity to control. Those called "reborn puppets" do not give any negative emotion and they never grow up. They are projections and replacements for the incompleteness and helpless loneliness that some people feel.
