Dissolved Traces

Dissolved Traces (2013)

Installation with water and a projection

An installation in time.


Fragments of negatives dissolve. Negatives carry traces of a past, a frozen moment. These moments dissolve gently in time. Dropwise, their meanin changes.


The process

The water is dripping on the negative, the image is removed of the eye and the memory solves in time. This proces is projected in a direct way: light and a lens. The proces is completely shown to the spectator, who is part of the proces.


The presentation of the traces (negatives)

In the next room the traces of this proces are presented on a shelf. They get a new value, a new place. Their original meaning is replaced by a new one.
