BLINDGANG GEGEN DIE SONNE, 1 - 24


24 pairs of photographs / sunlight on silver gelatin paper, non-reflective glass, 24 x 30 cm
2016


A pair of welding goggles is turned into a pinhole camera: photographic paper is cut in circles and fitted in place over each eye. Through the use of a strong filter, sunlight is the only light that reaches the paper to create an impression. While I walk, blind to the sun, it draws my actions: every little jerk or swerve, every motion of the head while walking causes the light source – the sun – to move in relationship to the paper. Each path I travel forms a group of lines, each walk a pair of images.
