A Night turns into a Day

An in-situ Video Installation at studio and home of Lisa de Kooning & Willem de Kooning, New York
.

Behind the studio is a bed of Large Bolders, some about 1.5 m high and 2 m wide. They are sitting there like an ensemble of giants having tea. I heard Lisa de Kooning always wanted to do something with these stones and it seemed as the perfect location for me. For some Days I’d sit with my video projector and computer behind the house in the company of what seemed to be legions of screaming insects. The dept of this choir is an astonishingly loaded sound carpet with a million details or surface that opens manifold if one listens to it with with the ears wide open. In the stark darkness the stones loom and the insects are turned on. The stones are being lit up with different shapes and colors, changing patterns as if different dimensions existed within them. The kingdom of stones will merge with the kingdom of insects, both deriving from the same place, the gray as Lao Tse describes it or from the dust in space that gathered into a gloving ball of magma later to become Earth as a Geologist would describe it. We who walk on the crust of that glowing ball bear eyewitness to the process of ascension from lifeless matter in the run of the last 5 billion years where a night turns into a day and vice versa
