16 mm film projection, black and white, 7min 56s loop
Cinematographer: Alvar Kõue, Dolly Grip: Maksim Podolski, Gaffer: Volmer Kliimand, Props: Meinar Mäesalu
2016

In the 16 mm film Exposure, an object reminiscent of a modern sculpture is depicted through a camera that revolves constantly around the object inside an industrial building. While the shots gradually move closer to the object, the film turns slowly from figurative to abstract and makes apparent the synchronized movement and interdependence of the rotating camera and the light source that is illuminating the object. The depicted object is a reconstruction of a sundial that was used in the 17th century.
For the film's initial presentation at the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia (EKKM), a platform was built on the floor at an angle that established its own order of space. This geometric intervention accentuated a similar use of geometrics in the film itself and created a dialogue between the textures and space shown in the film and those of the exhibition space in which it was projected in.
