After the piece In between (1999), Gegen die Zeit is another installation for the secularized Johanneskirche in Feldkirch.
The video projection depicts a female arm holding either a brush or a piece of cloth. It moves across the surfaces of the slightly darkened interior of the nave. A churning sound is perceived while the hand moves around.
The clash between the specific architecture and the projection creates three-dimensional distortions of the image, which reshape the real space. The projection itself is conceived not as a frame or a window, but rather as a movement of unfettered images. This creates the feeling of an image set in motion through the activity of the projected body part.
The projection into the nave is made via a computer-controlled mirror device. Taking into account that the length of the video loop and the mirror's interval of motion do not match, the projected sequence and the motion in the space are designed so that they will always be assembled in a new way.
The work was adapted in 2008 for the exhibition Strom des Vergessens at Aktienkeller Linz.
