The Quiet Two
|street sound||nature sound|
|still image||moving image|
|to watch||to be watched|
Two quiet ways of looking: a close look to a small and almost silent world and a view of a very far place where the sound is out of reach.
The golden ratio is an example of our anthropocentric view of the world, how we impose patterns on nature in our need for structure and understanding. The golden ratio is used to create not only a structure for visual composition, both in the video and in the series of images, but also as a time pattern in the video.
Each series of images is a sequence representing a daily habit, a small ritual like cooking or dressing. The 24 images refer to the standard film measure of frames per second, the movement of the actions is invalidated by making each frame a separated image, a static representation of movement.
