Kanyon, Y-nak, 2004

limestone, video
5,5x49x65 cm, 4'22" loop

The surface of a lithography stone was incised in a way similar to the way a river slowly cuts out its bed. As the edges of the stone are not visible in the pictures, it might seem that the surface of a planet has been photographed from a satellite once every hundred thousand years. The speed of the film was set in a way so that the changes can only be sensed and not seen.
