LOOKING UP


 
I am interested in the phenomenon of the upward gaze
an sich
The visual paradigm of the upward gaze is associated with the sublime, desire, belief, the "absolute".

 
In the short videos I'm looking up in different situations and
environments. The merely "romantic " images are
accompanied by the original sound of the shots. Image, atmoshpere and sound are precarious and not mutually
reinforcing eachother, regarding to the possible expectations one might have. Both seem to speak another
language which has the tendency of a disappointment.
Even our imagination can wander off, we are confronted with certain blunt restrictions. As if the Apollonian is
disturbed instead of inspired, by the Dionisiac or vice versa.
