This video shows the daily walks of my father around his meadow and tells his loss of space. ‘His field outside’ became smaller and smaller. Big walks had to be replaced by the safe inside borders of his domain, with the wire as a possible grip. I walked monthly with him on his tour during a whole year.
The music, composed by Joachim Badenhorst, underlines the rarefied mood of this repetitive daily action, frightening and comforting at the same time.
