Heimat is built upon the authenticity of presence and response in complex interplays of movement and sound. The piece is composed at lightning speed, and aims to unite perception and essence.

In this way the artists are simultaneously directing and departing. By capturing small shutter speed scenarios that appear and dissolve,

Heimat holds both ambiguity and meaning, allowing the viewer to journey with them through both the concrete and the imaginary.
