En mémoire de mon grand-père Walther Scheidig
periods of existence is about mobility and constantly changing colors in a quite static framework of repetitions, like panels of painted glass. The work is composed from a constraint set of elements which combine and re-combine over the course of the piece; and with strong local contrasts between mobility and stasis, as well as synchronicity vs. temporal offsets.
The elements undergo slight variations but defend their existence to prevent too much evolution.
