In this audiovisual installation I react to today’s accelerated society and reflect on my own “pausing” and re-evaluation of priorities. I use artifacts in the form of photographs and videos from my internship in Portugal and my long-term stay in the Portuguese countryside. There, time stood still for a while, and I had the time to do nothing, to laze around, to think.
I project videos capturing fluid movement through the landscape, the ocean, the rocks, onto mirrored objects inspired by the cliffs – I see them as a metaphor for the world that flows and affects us, and we are often no longer even anesthetized to it, so it just bounces off of us in a kind of jumble of light reflections, leaving almost nothing that sticks. The whole installation is accompanied by the surrounding sound of my voice reciting diary snippets from this time.
