Yiannis Pappas | Motion-Less

Motion-less video is a rhythmical coexistence of two different kinetic environments. Nature and urban. A compatible motionless body is performing in harmonious, agreeable or congenial combination with the elements that surround it. According to Gaston Bachelard, Immensity is within ourselves. As soon as we become motionless, we are elsewhere; we are dreaming in a world that is immense. Indeed, immensity is the movement of motionless man. It is one of the dynamic characteristics of quiet daydreaming.
When such daydreams as these take hold of meditating man, details grow dim and all picturesqueness fades. The very hours pass unnoticed and space stretches out interminably. Indeed, daydreams of this kind may well be called daydreams of infinity and freedom. 

"Motion-less" was presented in the Transmission Video Art Exhibition, that took place in Athens at BIOS Cultural Center and the Bagkeion in the context of the Athens Biennale AB5to6 "Omonoia".
