4 times the same motif?
To Mirja: Donate and me still wonder, what happened in this second to let
her open her mouth this way. We can´t remember, but it looks like a cry in a
fight. Yes, the wind blew heavy and crazy on this day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAkp9kCaLtA
To Wolf: This motiv was planned just as one between 15 other motifs for an
exhibition at the Photokina Köln. But the company misinterpreted the order
and provided 16 times the same photo! We made a deal instead of destroying
15 displays. Now I´m experimenting what to do with this accidental richness.
oh my, what a story! You can send some for me...And <3 greetings to Donate ,
can have moments you don´t remember...but trust photos!
Thanks, Raija. I´ll reserve one of the displays for you. And yes, a photo
may catch a real moment. But it creates an illusion in this case..
...same installation two days later at University Stuttgart
"Mind behind stone"...hmm, but your eyes look all the more intense. There
are many eyes looking at the visitor - in secret, a silent observer?
But you looks very open in the picture - not so secret :-)

hi Chris, nice to meet you inside of your stone age installation ;-)
To Mirja: Thanks for your associations. I did not take care about that
aspect before: That someone is watching the visitor. To me just the look of
the person into some "outside" was important. You are right, especially in
these times where we know that our internet actions get collected by spys -
these walls show a gesture of watching the people.
To Wolf: Hehe, "Stone Age" - a gesture with stones, showed on modern media -
a good point of view!
many associations, and some like Mirja..not so easy to write in my English
Raija, you have to use google translater - than it is more easy!
So often happen that we think of ourself in the idea - we show the "inside"
version of the idea and not the "outside" - from what perspective the people
will see the idea.
