A PLACE / EINEN ORT FINDEN
Crucial in the establishment of a territory is the autonomy
of qualities and rhythms.
A certain level of decoding or deterritorialization must take
place, if a territory is to be formed. To create a territory
„is in fact an act“ – an act which is not
necessarily intentioned or concious. (Deleuze / Guattari)
The Sub on mars is the explorer in this new land –
his sight is not clear. He probably missed the times on the
planet with more human and humid conditions. He travels in
a small selfcontaining unit. He brings his plants. He brings
his pipe and revolutionary ideas about how to deal with the
agressive pre-emption of space.
He brings his milieu components and they become a new quality.
Some of this fictional places emerge through transplantation
and the addition of tiny integer hideouts. Some collapse through
a simultaneity of image information and abstract form. Our
traveller finds himself in these abandoned spaces and likes
their latent ambiguity.
Bringing a representative image to it’s borders by
duplicating it: a mirror image - slicing up the picture and
introducing layers to deal with time.
The Sub is moving in a temporal dimension, by ignoring the
fact that a painting is always a motionless spectacle, a site
frozen into eternity.
