Olaf Schirm – fadeR

fadeR is a spray installation.

A controlled spraying process triggers a finely misted liquid spray.

This liquid spray and sporadic drops hit a canvas made of high-tech material and turn black on contact with the surface.

The now black drops on the canvas evaporate quickly, becoming greyer and more blurred.

Until the line between what is seen and what is remembered blurs.

The artwort opens the topic about the duration and experience of a moment.
