A voice over : 9 kilometers, 57 minutes 40 seconds : The heat is standing in the air, I am running inside a huge corps of people, their footsteps drizzle on the wet floor. Cheering and the sound of drums reverberate in the wide streets. The physical exhaustion has passed, my senses are widely heightened, sounds of the background pushing against the margins of their representation.
Later at home, I would analyze my recorded movement from horizontal perspective. I am drawing them on a geographical map by physical action. From a plain drawing, the process of running has transformed into data. Metadata, that is, an array of informations on the characteristics of other data collected. During month 1 - 3, it is shaped by poor economy. I have no energy or creativity to escape the path. It is still only April, i tell myself.
A voice over : 7 kilometers, 42 minutes 02 seconds : Behind the atlantic coast on a little island prior to the danish mainland. Little entwined paths in the mossy floor. The sun is shining, in the warm air various scents evaporate and linger in the wind protected wood lawns, rise and circulate. Rose hips and wild thyme. Sunlight creeps through a thicket , reflected by spiderwebs. He is running in front of me in his usual posture.
I connect to my earplugs, a person speaks. A provisional room, a russian airport, international territory. The voice tries to predict the full scale of the catastrophe. I can’t listen to it, I’m caught up imagining the room. I imagine partitions, this is the room, made of 8 rollable partitions.
...the person in the furcoat speaking. The voice says „the harm is civic, the harm is collective, the harm is to the architecture of trust“
