Homesick, 2005/2008

Material: video camera, screen, collapsible table, food leftovers, waste

On and next to a collapsible table lie scattered food leftovers, disposable plates, pieces of wood, cardboard and wire. Milk drips from a tilted carton.
A camera is directed onto the scene from above. What the camera films is shown on a screen. It is on this screen that the seemingly loose and random elements form an image of a landscape: the paper triangle lying on the floor becomes the street, the pieces of wire on the table complete the wooden sticks on the floor to form street lamps and the milk drops appear to be light points traveling on the street at high speed in direction of the horizon where they finally disappear.
