Interview 'Pauline Nijenhuis: Man and machine' in English by    

En français:

Le travail de Pauline M.M. Nijenhuis induit une impression de vitesse. Ses compostitions illustrent les spectacles les plus communs de notre époque: les paysages vus à partir d'une voiture en mouvement.

Quotes of Pauline

"These photos, taken from a fast-moving car, show images that my brain can hardly decipher anymore. The distortions in the image show another new reality, a new truth. What I see or think I see, that I try to intensify or give a certain direction in my work. Whether this is the correct visualization of reality is irrelevant. And that is precisely what illustrates the risk of observation in our ‘fast time'."

"That other reality that becomes visible through speed."

Auf Deutsch:
