Exhibited in Schloss Wiepersdorf, 2011
In spatial and technical terms - there are two 20"monitors placed on a wall with a cardboard box in front of them, out of which you hear a very low and deep oscillating noise.The video is composed in an endless loop. Fixed perspectives onto wafting tree tops and an unexplained sand dune are constantly alternating, just like a sequence of still life shots. So, consequently a naked human man is walking into the frame, passing it through and disappearing be-hind the dune - just to appear again some minutes later, sit down on the clear cut between sand and forest, watching, and returning to where he came from.
The wind itself is separated from the scenes described above, stored in a common cardboard box and using its volume and inner surface as its medium to generate the sound (exiter-speaker).
This work was developed during a residency at Schloss Wiepersdorf, which is located in a very small village in South Brandenburg, not far away from an area once used as a russian military training site. The sand dune re-appeared between 1945 an 1990, because of the excessive use of tanks, which made it impossible for trees to keep growing on the sand. Right now it is discussed to keep using the dune for cart-races to preserve its specific nature.
