photographic captures of moments show office chairs positioning themselves towards each other on post-modern ground. white on white is the theme, shade and doubled manifestation ask for the meaning of

space between physical matters, ask for the character of emptiness, the character of fullness.


it seems as if people sit on these chairs - but they do not sit there. People in relation to each other or without relation, in distance to each other or without distance to each other .... originally, visitors of an art event created this shots of visual impressions on abundance and richness, emptiness and isolation, tenderness and encounter, barriers and distance, attention and perception. people feeling comfortable [or caught?] in post-modern ambience, people whose tracks of communication can be felt still ....


using the stop trick-method, the film is composed of single photos producing a scenic process of ever changing constellations of chairs towards each other, with each other, apart from each other, constellations representing a steady flow of time and a rhythm of individual forms and manifestations of communication in so-called modern worlds.
