“As being motivated by personal life events I have been involved in that psychological mechanism when people interpret, and structure things having happened to them in a moment of real or assumed importance in time. By using my experiments, I reflect to that definition of photography that claims it is a moment captured and taken from the flow of time. First, I record the event on a videotape, I place the camera on a stand and do not move it while I am recording.  I transform the video with a simple algorithm, which is my own code. I remove a given line of pixels of every frame and intertwine them into one still image. My series of pictures are compiled from such recordings of events where the long-standing static state is disturbed by a momentary change. This change divides the timeline appearing on one axis of the shutter camera image.”
