"Analog Sun Tracking", Langkamp follow the optical movement
of the sun through a 24 hours time-lapse video. A camera driven by a mechanical tracking
device is recording the path of the sun.
From the point of our
star at the center of our solar system shifts every minute and we call it
"rising" and "setting" even though we understand its
nature. It strikes me to play with this daily illusion and to do research about
our relationship with this visual nature.
Analog Sun Tracking (2013) was developed by Johannes Langkamp as part of a summer sessions residency at Chronus Art Center, Shanghai.
