CIRCULAR WAIT, 2010 - 2014
The work in the project Circular Wait focus on examining our oftentimes artificial and contradictory relationship with nature – a relationship that is largely about control. Circular Wait proceeds from the longing for the authentic and wild that is fundamental to many subcultures that to a greater or lesser degree distance themselves from urban culture. Images from places such as eco villages, Rainbow Gatherings, and Teaching Drum – a stone-age survival school – are juxtaposed with different forms of outdoor life and encounters in or about nature, situations of contemplation or surveillance. The title Circular Wait refers to a state in harmony with the cycles of nature, but by extension also to an inability to break a pattern.
