watching a movie is watching the object
Spätkauf Theresienstr. 154
The wall drawing Teeverpackung, 2009 (tea bag envelope, 2009), executed at Max Hetzler Gallery in Berlin-Wedding, indicated the position and topographical profile of a 4 x 6 cm crumpled tea bag envelope on a table in my studio in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
Each point of the gridded envelope on the table was measured in a direct line to its corresponding point of the drawn grid on the gallery wall several kilometers away. The results of the measurements, specified in kilometers, were transferred to the grid on the wall. A small nail at each crossing represents the angle that points out the direction of the measurement and the location of the envelope.
