Our eye is not a film camera and our brains use its motion detectors to create the visual illusion of motion when a series of images is displayed in quick succession.

In Koek’s city’s heartbeat you are forced to move your eyes, to be that film projector of his untruthful moment in time. Like in a 19th century panorama painting experiencing, an event in motion. Creating the illusion of a fluid passage of a stretch of time.

Fact and fiction using time and space as elements of a systematic framework to structure an experience creating one entity, embracing happenings in the past, the current and of future’s promise. Seemingly without a beginning and ending. Like a Buddhist universe that goes through repeated cycles of creation, cycles of human breathing rhythmatically coinciding with the pace of a city’s heartbeat.
