2020 | Installation consisting of a video with sound (4.27 minutes), projected on a rear projection screen; flamingofeather; red window film
Pluto was developed within a project series called »von_bis_ « and was located on the attic of a heritage protected house in Saarbrücken that was built in 1898.
The installed projection shows a slow motion recording of a group of flamingos at a waterhole.
The wooden attic room is bathed in a dark red light that enters through a small colored roof hatch. In the darkest corner of the room one can spot a softly lit feather that glimmers in the dark like a distant star in the nightsky.
Each work of the exhibition was accompanied by a short text. Plutos text gives us scientific data about the dwarf planet Pluto. It relates the protectedness of the birds-nest, the house or the space capsule to the cosmic vastness, the warmth of our home to the coldness of the universe, the passing of time on earth to the passing of time in the All.
