Cyclone is an audiovisual installation treating borders, real and imaginary. It searches out the occasions, actions, and thoughts that keep us in a lockhold and proceeds to the state in which we silently lose our capacity to imagine. From these impasses the narrative moves on to a possible confrontation with others or reflections on ourselves. It leads us to the threshold of circular motions that follow the rotational direction of the earth.
Cyclone is an area of closed, circular fluid motion rotating in the same direction as the Earth. This is usually characterized by inward spiraling winds that rotate anti-clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere of the Earth. In the Northern Hemisphere, the fastest winds relative to the surface of the Earth therefore occur on the eastern side of a northward-moving cyclone and on the northern side of a westward-moving one; the opposite occurs in the Southern Hemisphere. Cyclonic circulation is sometimes referred to as contra solem, without the sun.
