“What happens when nothing moves, when the mind of the artist is in standstill? Stagnatic state cannot be shown outside – artist has to always be energetic and creative character. The pause makes movement visible for it allows us to process the information which we just received earlier. Yet a stop is too seldom granted the value it deserves. The art calls for standstill, just as dynamic movement needs a pause from time to time.”

“When does a movement stop and another begin? We try to capture the interval between these events. Scientists claim that the space is kept intact by a so called dark matter, composition of which we do not know. Could it be that the physical and emotional pauses are the dark matter that keep art together? Is it possible to bring the unseen into the limelight?"– Petri Kekoni
