One frame infinite

The starting point in this work, is a photograph from one of Louise Bøgelund Saugmanns many trips to South Goa. The photograph shows a landscape with the natural sculpture, Magic Rock. It is difficult to imagine how, it was placed and stays in place. From geologists and geographers, we know that similar phenomena exist all over the world, still the sculpture is considered a miracle by some.

'What the photograph reproduces to infinity has occurred only once', wrote the French theoretician, Roland Barthes in the book, Camera Lucida. Inspired by this statement and that the same image contains countless interpretations and aesthetic expressions, she approaches her photograph from different viewpoints. She photographs it on the wall in her living room and study light changes over time through photographic montage work, fascinated by the changes, even though minimal. She blows up small areas of the photograph in search of what the photograph is made of. She sends the digital file to artist Will Harris, who translates the digital information of the photograph into a sound piece. She hands over this sound to musician Abdullah S, who creates piano pieces from it.
