Shadow Grounds (2001)
A video installation by hc gilje, presented at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin in august/september 2001, a 10x4 m video projection filling the entire wall in a white room. It is running off a computer, creating an everchanging stream of video and audio in the meeting between programmed structure and the media.
« It may well be imperfect, » I say, « but it leaves traces. And we can follow these traces, like footsteps in the snow . »
« Where do they lead ? »
« To oneself », I answer. « That´s what the mind is. Without the mind, nothing leads anywhere. »
Haruki Murakami, Hardboiled Wonderland and the End of the World
