HOW TO FANCY THE LIGHT OF A CANDLE AFTER IT IS BLOWN OUT?
Yes, how? How could one do this? How is it possible to experience something in the present that has just passed?
Could one play with the light that we usually capture as photos with our cameras?
In front of a fluorescent wall that glows under the influence of ultraviolet light, the game begins – and the title of the work is written without a question mark:
HOW TO FANCY THE LIGHT OF A CANDLE AFTER IT IS BLOWN OUT.
