project 2003 (Quicktime-Movie, 4,3 MB)
first of January 2002 I take several
pictures of my face per day. Every
time with stretched left arm, eyes
fixed on the camera lens. I try
to look into the camera without
emotional expression on my face.
I pick one selfportrait per day.
The eyes (more precisely: the iris)
get fixed onto the exact same spot
within the picture frame. Then the
daily selfportraits get animated
chronologically into the movie with
fine blending-phases. The constantly
same position of the iris within
the movie «attaches»
the film, it builds up a certain
stability for the film.
A time-lapse movie of my face is
generated in which I grow older
in different speed-intervalls (for
example within 30 seconds I grow
older one year/within 40 minutes
I grow older one year).
is a long term project. I started
it in my 30th year, the duration
of this project is open theoretically
ends with my death.
