(During summer 2006 I visited the worlds deepest man made whole at the Kola Peninsula (Russia). One year later I found myself on the other side of it.)
While presenting my piece Time will show (detail) and the video installation Stills in the context of Borderline Festival in Beijing 2007 I was invited to do my own research in an artist residency program. During that research period I created two small works. One was ‘a routine’ I could do/ perform as a daily practice in the studio. I called this a ‘space/ trace’. The other was an installation where I turned the whole studio upside down by hanging all the objects in the ceiling (some were also removed) and then entered inside. I was interested in doing manipulations made possible by new technologies by other means and to do them myself. I wanted to see how the qualities of the materials and the physical world could be altered and what that could produce as a shift or a disturbance.
