absent of is a multi-layerd photo and video research that contains natural, artificial and absurd elements. The inbetween of a screen and a recording camera allows an analog approach of editing the footages in a non-organic surrounding. Beside editing tools for transitions or making images transparent, no visualfilters have been placed at any moment. Being in between. Beeing it.
How can one be absent? Mentally, physically, locationally, eternally? What or who is absentspecifically? A potential human, a potential artist, a potential you, a potential me?
The devision and meeting of in- and outside views accompanied my thoughts in this process as a red line. A presentation of an artificial nature that keeps one surrounding. Keeps one inhabiting.
absent of brings together various layers of sound and images. As it tries to fuse those on one level, on your device – it automatically creates an additional layer while watching, as the viewer reflect themselves in their screens.
