Horizon is a five channel video- and soundinstallation that thematizes the synchronism of space and time. The work shows five different people, spaces, locations and time zones, which are displayed in parallel in five projections. The aim is to make the present and the synchronism of multiple presents experienceable. Like a photograph, each of the five 45-minute sequences cuts a specific moment out of its temporal context, then combining it with the others in a new setting. The video projections show people in various places pursuing everyday activities. Each of the videos depicts a different time of day or night, and thus it is not clear that these videos were in fact made simultaneously, but in different time zones. In addition me, the other subjects are friends who I invited to participate in the project. The people do not know each other, and this gives rise to a web of relationships that remains open: a field of research that is expandable and changeable. The setting thematizes the synchronism of space and time, and the discrepancy between social (imagined proximity) and geographic (real remoteness) space.
