My Temporary Visiting Position From The Sunset Terrace Bar (2007)

Set in the city of Ahlen, Germany, "My Temporary Visiting Position From The Sunset Terrace Bar", imitates an amateur's film of the landscape framed at sunset. While the city strip is pre recorded the sky is captured in real time from a webcam shooting the sky of Naples (Italy) at sunset and as such, always changing. The work, confronting themes such as exile, migration and border control, is enhanced by a poem by the esteemed author Ghada Samman and music by the international band Gotan Project and legendary composer Gabriel Yared . The project is fully realized with a website created in collaboration with Estudio Soma from Buenos Aires and a poster designed with Wien based studio Sheriff: they both act as complementary vectors investigating the borders of the concept at the core of the work.
