Presence #5. From -417 to +500

From -417 to +500. Video 3:40, 2009.

Dead Sea is situated at the level of four hundred meters below the sea-level. This place is a cradle of the three major contemporary religions. The film shows the upward way along the road going from the Dead Sea towards Jerusalem, i.e. from the landmark of 417 m below the sea-level up to + 500 m. The pauses in movement on this way are stipulated by the difference in time floating in “sacral” fields as compared to the “profane” time flow.
