Winks of Time (2013)

Which moment would one choose to tell from one’s life, if only one moment could be told? In this preparatory work for the Museum of Moments (2014), she combined spontaneous stories from senior citizens and filmed portraits as two different forms of collections on the subject of memorable moments, which she related to each other. However, there was only a limited technical structure available for this presentation: four adjacent 42-inch LCD flat screens showed passing portraits in front of a row of four benches for audiences with six fixed headphones for listening. Both collections were acoustically connected via the body and breathing sounds that were the only synchronised element. They could be witnessed in the images and were also reproduced via the headphones. Stefanie Lorey, Winks of Time, 2013, Hamburg
