The work I Am Here consists of daily video clips taken from the beginning of 2009. The work is an ongoing process.

The composition of the daily takes is always the same. The background and lighting depend on the environment and situation in which the clip was shot.

The work has been inspired by zen meditation. One of the key statements of zen is that there ever is only the present moment. The future and the past don’t really exist. Environment, looks and moods may change, but life is always about the one and the same flow of the present moment.

The duration of each daily clip is six seconds, so the duration of the whole piece is approximately 36 minutes per year. The piece is presented as a loop on either one screen or each year divided to their own screen.
