Glass Blocks #3


Glass block walls in a building in Frankfurt am Main: In front of a glass block wall, the branches and leaves of a large thistle (Sonchus gomerensis) move with the wind. The course of the sun changes the light on the plant and the reflections in the glass. Selected glass stones are recorded in a fixed section over a long period of time.
The final video image is assembled using the building block principle: a glass block cut out in the video editing programme and inserted 15 times into the image grid, each offset on the time axis by eight seconds, fills the format.
15 time courses are thus made visible simultaneously across the individual fields, and thus the different states of a time span of 2 minutes as a complex in each individual video frame.
Since the timeline offset of eight seconds is in the time of short memory, the structure of the repetition remains clearly recognisable. Equivalent to this, the changes in the light and the ever-changing movements of the plant run through the repetitive stone.
The recordings and combinations of two stones, which last several hours, are presented synchronously on two monitors hanging next to each other. The size of the stones in the video image corresponds to the dimension of the stones in the wall.

Four Lemons


A still-life motif: four lemons lie on a table.
On a sunny morning, the light fields from three windows move across the table.
The recording of this process, four hours long, results in the video.
The movement of the shadows is clearly visible in the section of the recording.
From time to time the wind moves the windows.
Mirrored surfaces of light glide across the table, following the course of the shadows.
The light and the shadow change the yellow of the lemons.

Still Live: 2019-04-24


Another sunny morning in Dresden, 2019, 24 April.
In the large room with three windows, there are two water bottles on the table. The light fields of the three windows gradually shift, now slightly offset with the course of the sun and the year, across the white tabletop and the piece of wall behind it.
The video work is made at the same time as on 16 April, as a recording over four hours.
Slowly and almost regularly, air bubbles rise in the bottles. From time to time, the wind moves even brighter patches of light through the motif with the window panes, running towards the visibly wandering shadows.

Five Lemons


Five lemons lie on a table: a still-life motif.
The light fields from two sunlit windows move across this table.
Recording this process, for two hours, creates the video.
The course of the shadows is clearly visible.
From time to time the wind moves the windows.
The shadow axes then glide ahead or back their way once more.
As a preview or flashback, referring to cinematic means.
