“Six doors” is an abstract and spatial
definition of time in a cubist manner. It shows us photographs of

space are visible through the door. These views are mounted together
in order to build a virtual room with the feeling of continuity.
Through the door we look into a corridor but every time we see a
different view of the same thing. The parts of the corridor to be
seen behind the door are shifted and placed in a similar way to
that of an axis of time. The perspectives of the doors and the corridor
behind are continuous. They reflect our effort to define time as
sections, one following the other one.

Many photographs have been made from different points of view and
brought together to create a virtual perspective.
