MAPPING IS OBSESSIVE MARKING AND MEASURING…
…the time until death. The Zimmertoren in Lier may be the only world monument to the obsessive mapping of the passing of time. Richard Humann adds one more layer to this obsession with a literal projection on the tower itse lf – a video loop of his own long braid of hair swinging to and fro. This projection of the body marking its own becomes a comment on the obsessive complexity of Louis Zimmer’s life work that makes Zimmer’s real (and maybe unconscious) message overwhelmingly clear. A miniature version of the video plays continuously in a more hidden space nearby. Even when the public projection is not visible, privately, the mapping goes on.
