comprises a total of 24 analog photographs, each measuring 60 x 40 cm. This includes a 3-second black and white silent video (3 Seconds video).
The series Super Heroes includes a work titled '3 Seconds,' which consists of 24 analogue photographs integrated into a short video. This piece offers a thought-provoking commentary on the complex and challenging issues surrounding refugee movements in Europe. The central character, referred to as the Migrant Woman, holds a flower towards the camera, symbolizing the universal desire for human interaction and compassion. The piece primarily examines the notion of a 'welcome culture' in Europe and the continent's efforts to close its borders to refugees who are fleeing war-torn regions, seeking safety and protection along natural migration routes within Europe. By emphasizing the importance of creating a more welcoming and accepting society for all people, regardless of their background or circumstances, the video work provides a timely commentary on the refugee crisis in Europe. The work draws inspiration from the history of photography and early video, particularly from the works of Muybridge.
