EUROPE IN MOTION
A TIME PASSING PROJECT
The constantly expanding archive of images of people
on escalators is an attempt to visualize the increasing Europeanization. The aim of this project is to establish a European work of art based on a comparising of a group of people on a similar location but in a different environment. Practically, the project could be not feasible. However accepted that the European integration phase could be seen as a period with its own sense, it might be possible to make it visible. For this research the camera, placed four meters in front of the escalator, is used as an observing and recording tool. Aware or not the people slide from up to down. The dynamic constant rythm gives the viewer a strong image experience and offers more than just an actual social event.
