PNEUMA MONOXYD

Exhibition

VIDEO INSTALLATION BY THOMAS KÖNER . DE . 2007

"As surveillance becomes the base of today’s society, I wish to focus on its implications by monitoring observation and usurping it’s tools. With the intention of taking a step forward from here, I began to invent my own imaginary tools".

The scenes in PNEUMA MONOXYD are observed with such imaginary tool. Its ability to unlock future, past and present unveils the moment as it is being pieced together, blurred and unstable.

Premonition, memory and splinters of Here and Now become perceptible as part of the fabric of the observed time.

PNEUMA MONOXYD uncovers fluctuations and invisible border crossings that constitute any moment. A static gaze of a Balkan market unveils the present moment as a porous frontier and seems like a window looking out to the beyond.
