BLINDGANG GEGEN DIE SONNE


24 pairs of images, sunlight on silver gelatin, anti-reflective glass, 24×30 cm each, instrument: Blindgang- Brille (blinding goggles)
2016


A pair of welding goggles is turned into a pinhole camera: photographic paper cut in circles is 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 Bignia Wehrli walks, blind to the sun, it draws her 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 she travels forms a group of lines, each walk a pair of images.
