existing and something to leave behind

installation / coals, furniture, glass, the spirit of the old train depot / 2017

Where is the point in time when a site could start to have a spirit ? This is what you don't really see by sight but you can feel the ‘atmospheric feeling’ which consists of a particular ‘aura’or ‘atmosphere’ that only things which have existed for a long time have. This ‘sense of existence’ is something beyond conceptual meaning and consists of elementary particles which are made from everything being here including a part of our body which have been decomposed at any moment. Some parts of our memories would be left behind here in this way.
