Nothing’s Forever

HD Video, 4.1 sound channel (surround sound), 28′

This video installation connects two different time levels: time-lapse and real-time.
The image material, which has been recorded using the research institutes’ webcams , serves as a starting point for the installation of the time-lapse plane. You can see daily recordings spanning over a year within the same location, played in 90 seconds time-lapses. Video images show birds moving timelessly while following their own time lines, in real time . The four-channel sound arrangement supports the spatial extension of the video. The image planes are optically and seamlessly integrated into one another, so that these time planes are only recognizable after (a certain) extended viewing time.
