This video is without a story,
it came about without a scheme, plan or aim.
No thought was given to an ending,
or to what might happen.
And if anything happens at all:
nothing was arranged, nothing planned,
I had nothing in mind.
You might call this video image a landscape,
But there is no landscape here,
just a spot;
outside the frame everything goes on.
The camera is only an object in the reeds.
You might see a timeline in this image,
with a start, duration and ending,
and with an idea
of intention, plan and meaning.
The camera clicks between start and stop,
but start does not change anything,
nor does stop.
Everything goes on
(Original Dutch text translated in English by Willem Jan Gasille.)
