Przypadek sprawił, że moje okno wychodziło na ów stary budynek z namalowanym zegarem, kiedy podczas stypendium artystycznego w Niemczech mieszkałam w Zamku Wiepersdorf. Ptaki zbudowały w nim swoje gniazda i każdego ranka widziałam jak młode ptaki, ucząc się latać, poprzez wektor lotu wskazywały kolejne godziny na zegarze. Rejestracja całości cyklu zajęło mi prawie trzy tygodnie. Siedząc tam, niezdolna zasugerować ptakom by w końcu wzleciały na przykład na szóstą, zdałam sobie sprawę jak relatywny jest czas.

It was of course a coincidence that this old building, with a painted clock, was right behind my window when I stayed at the Schloss Wiepersdorf, an artist's residency in Germany. The birds had built their nests inside it, and every morning, I could see the young bird rehersing. It took me at least two-three weeks to capture the whole circle. Sitting there, unable to tell the birds "well would you fly on number six now, finally?", I realized how relative the time really is.
