about:blank

Performance, Karlsruhe, 2008, video 40min, no sound

“about:blank“ is a five day performance that was exhibited as a time lapse video. A white wall filled with the stream of consciousness – „écriture automatique“. The flow of thoughts is captured at the moment they appear, one layer after another. What remains is a black surface, that could be overwritten in white again. The work becomes an eternal cycle, a metamorphose from black to white, and back. The process of writing becomes a ritual, the content vanishes. It is an experiment: how long can I write? What is it, that comes to mind? How fast does the time pass, while repeating an action over and over again?
