Light trap

The Hero of the film is a photo (taken by I.R. Kulik), which I copied from the GN Gallery publication in October ‘78. I assume that we construct the future from what we find and how we will reuse it with the help of new tools provided by technical relativism.
Each image is a closure of time, giving it a visible form. Photographs are not only endless messages of political or vernacular events, but also the history of photography itself, its materiality and shape of its surface. Consistently, the process of our life is staging, recording, collecting and archiving carefully imposed aesthetics, and then presenting a properly filtered image. These activities lead to the elimination of looking that could disturb the sanctioned order of the field of view. All this difficult coexistence of images requires new spaces. The time-changing co-presence and variety of aesthetic orders are complemented by the history of the material and the medium's transmission.
