“A body is a difference. Since it is a difference from every other body (…) it’s never done with differing. It also differs from itself.”
– Jean Luc Nancy
A gift accepted in the age of terror
Motion is impossible. This is what Zeno proved in his paradoxes, and this is what Michael Thorn has consistently proven with his photography thus far. For it is not simply a question of whether the photographic image is a visual document that supplants or supplements movement, but rather that it is a peculiar object which when produced correctly, completes all movement. Movement in itself says that we’re not really here. So, where are we exactly?
