A visual miniature made of a single image strip, evokes the process of wandering through the landscape through both captured images and through images made by motion of their individual parts, resourcefully putting in use optic features of film imprint in order to let the scenes disappear in the structure of the material by blurring and slurring their outlines.
“I build shutterless cameras to bypass sequential frame-by-frame recording and document reality using an uninterrupted flow of light. The world appears melted together in a single image shifting in time.” U. Petronin
