Domestic Nature Morte

An arrangement of ripe tomatoes – Stilleben – becomes a living painting in this time-lapse video. A month-long filming period is compressed into minutes during which the tomatoes undergo a true metamorphosis. First, the fruits turn into a dishful of rotting juice, then they turn back into being as perfect as they were at the beginning of the video. A linear concept of time turns out to be a construction when the same event is run backwards and forwards over and over again.
