Untitled 45 (Zweibahnstraße)

As part of a research process following the thoughts of Walter Benjamin, I began experimenting with lensless digital photography (single and multi-pinhole), in an attempt to photograph as if from the point of view of the Angelus Novus. The Angel of History, who faces the past with his back to the future, "looks as though he were about to distance himself from something which he is staring at". He sees the catastrophe in front of him, but cannot pause and repair what was broken, because the storm of progress pushes him away into the future. 

This perspective, this filter, guides my wandering through Berlin, within the ruins and fragments of history, attempting to turn the (ethical) look back to the forgotten (or to a forgotten). Trying to open a crack into what was, while remembering forward.
