A number of years ago, Steven Baelen had exhibited photocopies of several of his notebooks, which he carries around with him like his handkerchief, thereby adding a further kink to the process of “transmission”, of reproduction. With his “to_copy-box” developed in Berlin, and the digital drawings that emptied space animated in the void, the notebook sheet takes on another, shifted dimension of the space. What is happening here? The deposition of a view, a perspective, is fragmented into lines, into strokes of time, and consigned to observation for supplementary reproduction.
