I am interested in the intermediacy — the state of transition.
On a certain day, I cease to take any new photographs – I am focusing on the material that I took before.
I am working with individual fragments of my past until they lose any sense until any single photo begins to fall out of the context of time, location and out of my memory.
I feel nothing, looking at them. Transient state is the only thing that interests me right now.
According to ancient and medieval science, aether (Greek: αἰθήρ aithēr), also spelled æther or ether, also called quintessence, is the material that fills the region of the universe above the terrestrial sphere. The concept of aether was used in several theories to explain several natural phenomena, such as the traveling of light and gravity. In the late 19th century, physicists postulated that aether permeated all throughout space, providing a medium through which light could travel in a vacuum, but evidence for the presence of such a medium was not found in the Michelson–Morley experiment.
