Serious Apparitions

Machines move slowly across the landscape, smoke stacks gradually change their shape, trains roll smoothly through the image. Not much is happening in SERIOUS APPARITIONS and still something is taking place. The photographic images and their minimal alteration generate a sense of time in contrast to the industrial rhythm of the machines. At the same time the landscape is visible as technologically textured and spatially fragmented and is presented to the viewer as an aesthetic, sculptural object.
