Ich liebe es, wenn sich die Farbe verdichtet und wieder entzerrt. Wenn Stellen im Bild erst lebendig werden, weil andere daneben oder gegenüber liegen. Es ist nicht nur das große Ganze, es ist jedes Teilchen, jedes freie Stück, das ein Bild nachhaltig spannend hält und ihm Tiefe gibt. Alles scheinbar unordentlich in Ordnung.
I love it, when colors become alive through push and pull, one next to the other. It‘s not only the whole thing, it‘s each and every small piece of it, including the space between the colorfields and lines which makes it whole, declutters and generates depths.

The Thing Outside – a live presentation / lecture and/or an installation
developed in Italy, Switzerland & UK 2015 & 2016
The Thing Outside was initially established as a live lecture on the discovery of a mysterious thing, a large patio umbrella and a table (without chairs) in a town called Soiano by Lake Garda, North Italy. During a five day investigation into the nature and the possible motives of that thing outside, I compiled three videos, one slide show and various Photoshop images. About half a year later when I was stationed in Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily, as part of The Red Van research project, I stumbled across a group of people who organized a street festival that aimed to bring together Italians and immigrants. As an outsider, i.e. not classified as an Italian nor an immigrant, I found myself outside the festival circle. It all morphed into a thing, something I did not know, something that frightened me. The only thing left for me to do, was to record he location, the people, the event.
Back in the studio, it became obvious to me that there was an intense connection between the encounter with the thing outside in Soiano and the thing outside in Casellammare del Golfo. More on my website http://jayrechsteiner.com/the_thing_outside.htm
