MOMENT

2014

Werd' ich zum Augenblicke sagen:

Verweile doch! du bist so schön!

Dann magst du mich in Fesseln schlagen,

Dann will ich gern zugrunde gehn!

If ever I to the moment shall say:
Beautiful moment, do not pass away!
Then you may forge your chains to bind me,
Then I will put my life behind me,

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe  

 

MOMENT is a work for a remote area, no full moon, no light pollution, a landscape that is very dark at night.

 

An array of high power strobes, or even one super-strobe can lighten such an area for a split of a second, transforming it in this needle sharp moment into an otherworldly image.
