The three channel video “Minutes from Now” is inspired by a fictive-ethnographic approach (Henri Michaux) and shifts into view space-time phenomena (Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle) in connection with socio-political repercussions of and on the planet's ecology in the early twenty-first century. Stunning footage of a journey from Vienna to Tokyo are poetically edited together and condensed to form a distinct "timescape". Intense polyrhythmic sound textures, disturbing scraps of conversation, and meaningful visual sequences deliberately dissolve common time constructions and open insight into the plural time-worlds of our Anthropocene. The video work shows a continuum, which is shaped by human activities of permanent renewal, construction and deconstruction, migration and hypermobility, acceleration and raging standstill, and their immanent fields of friction. Note: In this exhibition, only one of three channels is exhibited.
