What is the spectral fingerprint of a place? A place is a crux poised between layers of time that stretch outwards in two directions: downwards, fossil records, buried strata of the light of the past; upwards, the ancient light of the stars. The spectral fingerprint of a place deals with its deep time - the light of its geological and cosmological past, interfaced by elemental media that shape the now. Now-ness is an interactivity. Luminous clouds of site-specific elemental media make up a crystalline clock-like mechanism to be moved and rotated by the viewer, co-composing the light of the place.
Two roads come together here: no one has yet taken them to the end. This long lane backwards: it continues for an eternity. And that long lane forwards - it is another eternity. They are antithetical to one another, these roads; they directly abut on one another: - and it is here, at this gateway, that they come together. The name of the gateway is inscribed above: "Now" - Nietzsche
