In an undefined, digitally composed room, a photographic figure is situated as if lying on phones. On closer inspection, movements emanating from the figure can be discerned: a flexing of the knuckles, a blink of the eyes, a slight turn of the feet, an arch of breathing. These movements refer to a living body. In the physical act of keeping still, they are the ones that inevitably lead the endeavor ad absurdum. Only death separates the living from these signifiers of life. The life-bound state of complete stillness is unattainable. Through photography, the body can pass that threshold. Becoming a photograph, the body gives its mobility and its three-dimensionality to the medium.
