Paul Klee’s endless movement: I am the arrow!


Colored horizontal lines for Earth’s horizon. And one black arrow pointing up to the sky, to suddenly fall down before reaching the top. “There is no movement without end” as gravity is inevitable, that’s the meaning of Paul Klee’s artwork at Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern.

I am now the arrow, and I move horizontally on my train from Bern to Zurich. I cannot fall back like Klee’s arrow, my horizon is horizontal like the train tracks shot out of my window at 1/8000 of a second.

1/8000 of a second (D800)                               1/200 of a second (human eye)

And most of it all, I can now create movement without end, endless arrows pointing to the left of the frame by shooting pictures to the tracks with lower shutter speed, from 1/80 of a second to 1.3 seconds.

If only Paul Klee had a camera, he could have changed his mind on endless movement: from impossible vertical … to possible horizontal 🙂 Here you find the full series.
