13 MONTHS
13 Month - video

The video scenes are influenced by Japanese haiku poems. The haiku focus is on "showing" as opposed to "telling". The videos are expressed in one breath and reveal my preoccupation with the powers and handicaps of perception. What is reality?
13 month - Photography

The video shows selected prints of my photographic documentation while I was living at a zen center. My intend as an artist was to choose a situation where I can produce free of the pressure of market and at the same time continue my interest about Time, Space and Existence.

For a period of 13 month I lived in Buddhist community, shared meals, participated in the work practice and daily meditation schedule with intensive seminars, week long meditations, lectures of mind and brain connections, next to environmental challenges, how to live in community.

During this time I documented myself with 35mm camera daily. The photographs are an intimate portrait of myself and my immediate surroundings. The original video is 12 Minutes long and runs as a loop.

The photographs are also available as Black&White Prints in Portfolio (96 individual photographs on Fiber based double weight enlarging paper, 11 x 14 each).
