SAME TIME. DIFFERENT TIME.

The work consists of two videos: The sun, going down in Los Angeles and coming up on the other side of the globe, in Vienna, at the very same moment. In my interest in perception I was dealing a lot with shift of views. These shifts can totally change the perception of a situation, but not only does it show different forms of “mis-understandings”, I would rather say that there is no objective view, as a view always needs a viewer. I always found it a strange situation, while there was bright day on the one side of the world on the other there was night. On an objective perspective these might just be different angles of sun and earth - for the subject it is the exact opposite, which is day and night. The work makes it able to experience the turn of the globe, to reposition oneself, but at the same time turns the heliocentric system around again.
