SLOW MARCH
video installation

2001

SLOW MARCH in London – 8 min 48 – represents the first indoor roadmovie paradoxically performed and produced in my studio in Vauxhall in June 2001. The end result, a hypnotic time-based melody with built-in suspense, is never the less a road movie. It takes the viewer on a metaphysical road, which can be seen as a subjective metaphor for the passing of life. This is not a visual single take that can be carried in our short-term memory, but a hypnotic time-based melody with built-in suspense, which plays with the possibility of a non-verbal vocal communication, and compels us to await its final resolution.

Exhibited at Essor gallery in London in February March 2002 part of Field Studies.
