A Day In A Life

Starting at sunrise, the pages of an empty book are turned by an airflow. At midday, the amount of the pages that have been turned roughly equals the ones that are still left. At sunset, the end of the book is reached. An unexpected usage of a book takes place in this installation. It is blank, but can still be read. In an intuitive way, without the torturous precision of the signs and by the invisible power of the wind. It reveals the time passed since the morning and the time left till dusk. It is reminiscent of a bygone era in which people lived actively in the daytime hours and spent the night sleeping. It invites to a reflection on weather this ancient way of life wouldn't be reasonable in our time again, taking into account energy- health- and other contemporary crises.
