»Eight Days A Week«
How old is the world? – “Seven days, and when they have passed, another seven days” is the convincing and correct answer that Till Eulenspiegel offered to this question in a film during a dispute among experts.
The course of history is not truly circular, but rather a double helix: it may be circular from day to day and from one year to the next, but in sum it is linear – from an ‹irretrievable past› to an ‹inevitable future›.
Photography creates worlds – or at least initially mountains of images. »Eight Days A Week« attempts to create the world from those mountains by placing the motifs in a kind of sequence based on natural history. Seven attempts are made here – based on the assumption that the divine creation might not have succeeded in the first attempt. To be more precise: they are seven plus one attempts. To be even more precise: in each of these eight attempts, the world is not created in seven days, but on one day more – because after the original creation is always finished on time for the Sabbath, the 7+ day is the dawn of the Anthropocene.
