Lukas „Rad-X” Radziszewski, Suns
For six years, I have had a passion for collecting chronometers. As an artist, my interest in measuring instruments and reflection upon time influenced my creative activities.
In the text below I describe a situation in which the passage of time is halted by synthetic means. I have created a project of a 24-hour live-video broadcast. It would involve displaying sunrise and sunset simultaneously. Both of these spectacles are twin-like landscape frames, even though they express two different phases of the day. Suns would be standing still above the line of the horizon during the so-called “golden hour”. Apart from the star, a fragment of the landscape and the current weather conditions are depicted as well
Sunrise and sunset, the border moments of the day and night cycle are of very short duration and at these moments a change of the sun’s position is particularly noticeable. The illusion of motionlessness can be created through the juxtaposition of a sequence of short 15-minute subsequent shots documenting the same moment. It is worth mentioning that only flowing editing and distortionless broadcasting will allow the moment to be freely extended in real-time.
