Inside the building, an archetypical, homely deserted scene hangs balancing on silk threads. There is a hushed tension. What you see is a frozen moment of the uninterrupted transition of time. As in a loop this work touches the search for balance.
The view through the window on the domesticated area at the other side of the hill, is used to enhance the intimate and homely atmosphere that this work evokes. This atmosphere is in duality with the threat the work radiates at the same time.
With this poetic image Schmeddes creates a universally recognizable feeling and confronts the spectator with hope and despair.
