There is little time to rest and digest the experience of the present moment. In a society were results are measured by time, we – have plenty of time. We want to show that all can be done consciously. In doing so, we coat our movements in gold. Are golden times ahead or behind of us? The focus lays on the simple everyday behaviour. Simple activities like doing groceries, to rest and muse, dancing and folding towels leads and fuses us together, into ever changing images. The golden sheet is on one hand a pictorial metaphor and on the other stage and prop at the same time. The visual language makes a reference to the symbolic functions of the colour and the auratic charge of the colour gold is building also a reverence to topics of existence, commerce and localisation. In our collaboration we allude different variations of the issue, transform and merge divers images, sounds and text collages together into a self-contained art piece. Each single and looped sequence of the 5-Channel video installation is projected in various sizes on the Wall.
audio text of the video sequence #4
No, I haven’t thought about leaving my home country.
The world has really become a big village and it doesn’t make a difference any more, where you are.
It is peaceful anywhere. It is dangerous anywhere. It is beautiful anywhere. It is dirty anywhere.
We are all together and we are one in the same heartbeat of this world, which we created together.
Do we know, where our friends sent their last e-mail from? How could we know!
When you send greetings to someone, does he or she know, who you are?
Do we know, if we breathe the air of our city or if it is heavy rains from paris?
But we do know one thing : We share one heaven, and it shines and snows on us, wherever we are.
