In “along the lines of the slack line” slackness is the quizzing state that never prevails. This sound and video piece deals with the extension of a thin time-space event into a thick material window.
A flash slowed down to become an event reveals details and discontinuities: a point in time becomes a tense chord of lines in space.
The video piece presents a tense space between two dissected halves of a translucent object. The focus of the image is on the space in-between as a place to go to for listening and accessing another dimension of time.
