A PRECISE MEASURE OF FREEDOM

A contemplative look at men and women in transit, searching for information and guidance regarding their travel on the info-screens at an airport.

 Please watch in full-screen mode, and give this 5 min. sample a little time to present itself.

The piece clandestinely observes individuality in the timing of events in the lives of different people. It is not obvious when an answer to their search is obtained and they can move on.

With an extremely slow, yet a clearly perceptible experience of motion, time is stretched nearly to a breaking point.
It becomes uncertain whether a still-image is being projected, or if this is a filmatic sequence.
I’m looking for the transgressive point, where a still image transforms into a timeline-based experience, and maybe also the other way round.

 

Some of the individual still-images.

In an ideal setting, a monumental format in the projection of these “non-movements”, would strengthen and give depth to the experience. With a free floor in front of the projection, one can walk up to the larger-than-life versions of the “seekers”, observing details in the changes, or stand back and take in the whole piece.
