2011 Shadows of Moments Passed (Ottenhuis, Diepenheim)

This installation is based on the video Shadows of Moments Past I shot in Schoorl earlier. The projection on the wall is complemented with drawings of trees. I wanted to show static moments in combination with video images that need time to be registered and presented. Sometimes filmed and drawn images connect with each other, sometimes not.

In the drawings for the first time I was able to catch spots of light like a camera obscura does. Drawing shadows with the deepest black I was able to create light with the paper. Shadows are immaterial and metaphysical – so are spots of light.
