Analog Sun Tracking, 2013
Solo exhibition at the Chronus Art Center, Shanghai (31°)
In "Analog Sun Tracking", Langkamp follows 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 view the 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.
