Showing On Air: traveling time series : Ahrenshoop #01

“traveling time series : Ahrenshoop #01” shows a precisely composed view re-corded in Ahrenshoop, a small town on a narrow peninsula at the Baltic Sea in Northern Germany. Only the sky and sea can be seen, which the artist filmed for one month every day. The tide, day and night, the moonset; an infinitely repea-ting process becomes a play of light. The video series “traveling time series” is an ongoing long-term project, where video sequences are created with images from different places and times collected over the years. Distant spaces and times are interwoven, the far becomes close, the presence dissolves in the flow of images. The movement within the image and timeline is a central theme of this series.
