Reflecting History

In the present age the concepts of past and future are being pushed into the background. Technological progress has made it possible to make everything instantly available at every place. This made the relation between space and time lose a part of it's relevance. The installation Reflecting History tries to remind the spectator of this relation using changes that take place in the course of time.

By taking snapshots of the space and reproducing them later on it's possible to make these changes visible. It shows that a space is made of a lot of different elements and that these elements are transient. When spectators from the present and the past come together at exactly the same position it becomes apparent that he is part of the space and all it's related elements. This installation tries to make clear that the spectator is connected to other moments, and therefore other people, by his presence is the same space.
