LIKE A BREATH IN LIGHT

A wide stretch of unbroken water to the north. It was always a such a dazzling point on my path by the shores of Lake Näsijärvi in the city of Tampere. Like a great goblet of light. Changing by the moment. Different every day.

For this I built a panorama pinhole camera and began to record the light at that place at different times of the day and seasons of the year. That was 2002–2004.I always sat at the same place on the rock of the shore with the tin box camera in my lap. During the lengthy exposures I allowed the light of the sky and the water flood into the roll of film inside my camera. And at the same time into it went the rhythm of my breathing.

When exhibiting Like a Breath in Light series I have included in to it the sound Horizons composed by Anne Lorenzen: http://www.annelorentzen.no/index.php?PageId=47
