AKOSUA VIKTORIA ADU-SANYAH
LISTENING SELF PORTRAIT IN THE CORNER OF A DARK ROOM 32 MINUTES
In darkness I stand for about half an hour,
clinging to the corner of an almost empty room.
I listen to a playlist of 32 minutes over headphones.
The only source of light is my laptop display.
My thighs are hanging in the corner
that is providing hold to my sleepy body.
The music is becoming more and more intense and transforms into a threat supported by the surrounding cold of the room behind my back.
I decide to leave the pictured frame after about five songs for two or three minutes and to take a rest next to the camera which is still photographing.
For the last few minutes I re-arrange myself into the corner again.
The unplanned interruption is not visible in the resulting image due to the length of exposure time.
The more actual time a photograph contains, the more it is hiding just in front of us.
