Story: This title refers to the suffering and anxiety of my wife for her illness and the heavy operation that they must undergo. The pictures are made just before her admission to hospital and the attitude of her body speaks for itself. My wife has an autistic syndrome and in her mind, there is currently great chaos. When I write this now, a few weeks later, she lies for several weeks in observation in the clinic with a very heavy depression. Recording with her in the first image is spontaneous behavior and not put in scene. The place of the recordings is a modern circular wall made up of a metal construction that is white lacquered. It is placed on a brand new graveyard. I've gone through the recordings the feelings of her and myself. An autistic person thinks in boxes and needs a lot of structure. Therefore, the blur of the squares because her thoughts at present allthogeter confused and her fears very large. The images are also more threatening and that is why I have chosen to go from blue to black. The air reflects the heavy train of thought of both of us during this process. The curved lines in the pictures symbolize the ups and downs of confused thinking. The last picture is the sparkling hope that still remains .
