How does the impression of being in a place change over time? How does being in a place and trying to discover different aspects of it lead one to change one’s first impression of it?

In a performance that is presented as a video documentation in the exhibition, the artist repeatedly throws a piece of white fabric off a balcony and captures every single moment of its fall to earth. Exposed to the currents of wind, the fabric twists and bends into different shapes each time.  The artist attempts to show that the same object will not stay unchanged over time but reacts to its surroundings. In the context of a fast-lived present, the project represents an invitation for contemplation and meditation by focusing on the small changes that tend to be overlooked.
