A Leaf (2003)

3 min 35 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

A year of leaves digitally scanned and compiled into one continuous vertical cycle, passing through green summer, red autumn and dead winter leaf.

"In 2004, this moving image was projected onto a tall, rectangular plasma screen mounted on an indoor wall in a greenhouse-like office building in Frankfurt. When installed, the work performed the action of mapping a territory (the building) with different environmental textures (the leaves); a symbiotic relationship of two different territories coexisted, as a kind of virtual-time-lapsed growing tree."
