Alix Poscharsky, As we all know..., 2006
This film is a six hour time-lapse sun track, shot around sunset. With the sun locked in the middle, the earth appears to moving from left to right across the frame (or around the sun). Referencing science fiction, this film is about the discrepancy of scientific world view and the everyday life. We know the earth is moving round the sun, but viewed from earth the sun appears to be moving round the earth. This film poses the question whether knowing (or 'seeing') is not just another form of believing, as, ultimately, what is shown in the film, is merely earth's rotations.
