The 5-Minute Drawings accompany my work on the TOMIKO Archive since many years. For each first observation and its connected drawing I am given exactly five minutes.
I see this series/method as a way to create an inventory of the first impression of each image and to narrate a very personal memory through the convolute. I later confront the drawings with the photographs in form of books/editions [pictures: scroll right]. When looking at the books – while they are opposing each other – the eyes need to wander: From the outmost left side of one to the outmost right one of the other. Within this travel it occurs that the drawing changes the hi/story of the photograph and the other way around – an endless game of interpretation starts.
