Time and Again / Persijn Broersen and Margit Lukacs

The work Time and Again (2011) is a contemporary vanitas-motif reflecting on the surface of our culture, seen as an elastic network of virtual realities in which decay and resurrection go hand in hand. In the video projection one sees a polygon model of a lily decaying and blooming at the same time. The lily, itself a symbol of eternal beauty and purity, appears as a white light on the wall. An arabesque that is not bound to time and space, fixed in an eternal now.

This project is presented as part of the exhibition 
Seeking Silicon Valley at the ZERO1 Garage 
September 12-December 8, 2012
