Crépuscule" of Alois Lichtsteiner/Manuel Schüpfer, 2011

The video [...] captures the atmospheric qualities of a sunset. In doing so, the camera is pointed at a cliff face and records the visual changes in real time until night falls and darkness shrouds everything. A relationship of scale cannot be discerned due to the static way the shot is framed, and the passage of time is perceived only through visual changes. And yet this perception manifests itself through the view of the unchanging cliff face. The mind falls into a trance-like state and begins to see things that turn out to be mere figments of the imagination. The video is conceived as a loop, and once darkness has enveloped the screen, it is played back in reverse. Natalia Huser, 2011.
