What differentiates a cross in a church from a cross in a shop?
For Transition Triptych actions and movements of tourists, nuns and monks were documented in Italy's sacred city of Assisi. By creating a collage of the performances, places and icons that are either considered praying/sacred or buying/ merchandise in split-screen lm composition, objects and performances referring to a concrete meaning dissolve in their contextual embedding. Framing and narrative line reveal a twilight zone where no clear visual distinction can be made between holy and commercial objects and tourist, shopper or believer.
