We are so close to everyday life that we think we know it well. Monotonous. Uniform. Ordinary and gray. It is apparently only the exceptions and peculiarities that bring us joie de vivre and rays of light. We are so involved in our everyday life that we often lack the time and distance to reflect on it in order to be able to enjoy the true aesthetics of everyday life.
The sound, video, and installation work ‘Everyday rhythms’ tries to refute the negatively charged theory of routine and to make the beauty of a daily repetitive, yet unique daily routine conscious and tangible for everyone. Unique because each individual is part of this everyday world in which he unconsciously influences both himself and others. The consequence of this is a constant synchronization between one’s own world, co-world and environment, which is expressed in the daily new formation of recurring everyday activities (drinking, eating, sleeping, ...). The work comprises of seven exemplary everyday lifes (Monday to Sunday) which, compared to one another, are similar but nevertheless not identical.
