exhibited: VLT press, Västerås, Time limited exposure, commissioned
”The illimitable, silent, never-resting thing called Time, rolling, rushing on, swift, silent, like an all-
embracing ocean-tide, on which we and all the universe swim like exhalations, like apparitions which
are,and then are not: this is forever very literally a miracle; a thing to strike us dumb, for we have no
word to speak about it.” Thomas Carlyle (1795 –1881)
Play and fluidity
This event and sound installation was a commissioned work for VLT-Press in their new large space for their large daily paper press. The flow character of the industry in printing daily papers was taken into consideration when hanging the long floating lines.
Typical smell and watch out!
I cleaned the floor with a slight dilution of chlorine used in swimming pools during exhibit. I warned people to not go so close to the blue fictive pools and blowing in a whistle.
