In And Out Of Time

Terike Haapoja

‘In And Out Of Time’ is a two-channel, moving-image installation touching upon themes of death, time and absence. In this diptych, one side shows the cooling of the dead body of a calf on snow, seen through a thermo-camera. The other side shows a mirrored image of the same scene but recorded with a regular video camera. The original recording time of 7 hours is visible as a time code in the lower right corner of the video, although the duration of the installation is 4.5 hours. Within this time the calf’s body has cooled down, and is no longer visible to the thermo-camera; the transition from subject to object is a process that is much longer than the moment of dying.
