Brunnen / fountain - a long-term observation

The fountain at the „Wolkenhof“ is a magic place. It has been documented by video since 1999. An increasing number of still lives shows the passage of time in simultaneity. You witness the different seasons, people passing by, children playing and growing up while water runs and drips infinitely.

The single videos never show full shots but details of the fountain. The installation with 7 monitors resamples an image of the reality in its spacial dimensions. A time range of 9 years is shifted to simultaneousness.
