I spent the nights of fall and winter of 2017 walking the towns and fringes of the northern Ruhrgebiet and the Emscher valley.
There is an acuteness of hearing and a sense of something larger when visiting those drab and menial places at night. Things, animals and people restricted to the hours of darkness come out and start prowling. The daylight people can be reckoned as dead for a brief period and it really changes the game.
I collected quite a bit of impressions there and maybe it turns into something tangible. Something new is coming to those places and noone knows if it is to fear or to embrace.
I have started to collect impressions from my nightly ramblings. Most are sketches only, with the occasional dip into further possibilities. There are strange things about on the fringes of the town and I am not so sure if night is only a period of darkness caused by planetary rotation. Night is territory, a land of its own.
