11 places | 11 subjects | 11 moments

The project follows a defined conception:

  • Eleven places in eleven months (January is the month of rest).
  • Eleven pictures of each place, in total 121 pictures to be generated in ­eleven years.
  • The eleven photos of each place are layered to constitute one single image.
  • The final presentation comprises eleven condensed and layered moments.

The unpretentious places are individually changing within time.

Eleven is the number of remainder and of sin. It has exceeded the decalogue which can be counted using one’s fingers. Hence it is the number of fools, who know no order and stands between ten and twelve. Twelve is the overall regulative number i.e. of Christ’s disciples, the number of months in a year and hours in the day. This work is a projection into the future – hence perfection cannot be attained. The result can only be devised. The eleven moments are condensed – tightly packed – as if the author sought to capture time, never to let go of it again.
The project started in 2009 and ended as planned in 2019.
