Kiss the Moment, it's not a Pyramid! (Berlin)  

2021 • 4.09 min • Super 8


A documentary.

I make positive prints from my pinhole negatives, I develop them in a specific soup that is related to the object and whose ingredients grow nearby:
Clover soup, peppermint tea, flower soup … and in Kompostol, a developer made from food waste.
A person's leftover food of one day makes one liter of developer and develops about 6 photos.

I take something from nature and I give it back.

I hang the photo in the place where it was taken. It remains there until it gets stolen, rained down, or weathered.

It is in transit, it will disappear, but that doesn't matter, the flowers are wilting as well and the trees are losing their leaves.
Nothing is forever, but for a while it is just there, delightful: kiss the moment, it's not a pyramid!
