More information

David Claerbout uses light and time as his primary mediums and sees their effect as the foremost agents of communication. Architecture is frequently represented in his work, the tones are uniform and sombre. In this work by Claerbout, the image initially seems to have been frozen as if in a photograph. Only after a while do the subtle changes of light and shadow become apparent. The film’s 38 minutes correspond with the actual time needed for the sun to pass over that part of the facade. David Claerbout's work intensifies the spectator's perception: you are made aware that you are looking at an image.
