Spacetime Traveller
Berlin, 2006

"Spacetime Traveller" is a study of time, movement and weightlessness. The video of an athlete doing a somersault on a trampoline is played forwards and backwards simultaneously, coinciding at just one point in time, at the cusp of the somersault.

The short moment of weightlessness - the epiphany of the movement - is the result of years of practice by the athlete and the expenditure of large amounts of energy. Not unlike man's attempts to eperience the weightlessness of space.

For the observer past and future combine to allow a fresh view of time and space.
