If I could only be sure, ECAL 2020
Inspired by the human capacity for emotional transformation and the examination of the still life genre, the project merges a series of still life videos of everyday objects and organic materials, presenting them through a unique, characterized manner, creating a collage of different recurring moments and processes in time. The emphasis is on exploring the concept of entropy, making time tangible and capturing the transformation of a moment into its material representation.
‘If I could only be sure’ is presented on a 12 × 2 m half-circular projection screen, thus surrounding the viewer with the imagery and allowing for a more visceral experience.
Amid the fragility of the balance of life, its evermore mercurial force and the pressure to adapt to new realities, observing familiar objects can provide a moment in time for memories, senses, connections. The image, per se, is essentially the observation of a phenomenon that passes through time.
