A barren place among places: the facelessness of technology vies with the eloquence of distant hills in a divided universe.


“The documentary form of Sala’s videos succeeds in extracting from experiance the sensation of the timeless continuation of lives, cities, or instincts in the midst of the aggregate of history. The films seem almost buoyed by the sense that life goes on, even in times of spacial upheaval and historical crisis. Sala’s work offers insight into the life that emerges at the very moment when hermeneutic categories are suspended.” Jan Verwoert Parkett No. 73, 2005
