Exposition

What calls for thinking? (2014)

About this exposition

en
My video "Mitä ajattelu kutsuu?" exposed here, audiovisually mimics, translates, challenges and transposes Martin Heidegger's essay "Was heißt Denken?". A compilation of passages of Heidegger's essay, which I have translated into Finnish for this purpose, makes up the voice-over accompanying the images in the video. The exposition also includes these passages in Finnish and German writing. The visual language of the video, in turn, edges Heidegger's pondering out of its focus by turning itself towards a series of questions deriving from the margins and lacunae of the essay. In its own peculiar way, the video is a call for thinking. Further, a text, entitled "conversation" in the menu, addresses some aspects of Heidegger's essay as if seen through the video. The conversation revolves around the questions of language and translation. Its form reflects the density and multifaceted character of the audiovisual material. Finally, "epilogue" attempts at unfolding a question concerning "intelligent design" that arises from the material. Here, my main point of reference is Jean-Luc Nancy's notion of struction.

Tässä esiteltävä videoni "Mitä ajattelu kutsuu?" mukailee, kääntää, haastaa ja transponoi Martin Heideggerin esseetä "Was heißt Denken?" audiovisuaalisesti. Videon ääniraidalla kuullaan tätä tarkoitusta varten kääntämiäni jaksoja kyseisestä esseestä. Ekspositio sisältää nämä tekstinpätkät myös kirjoitetussa muodossa sekä suomeksi että saksaksi. Videon kuvakieli puolestaan ujuttaa Heideggerin pohdintoihin mukaan aineksia esseen marginaaleista ja katvealueilta. Omalla erityisellä tavallaan video on kutsu ajatteluun. Ekspositiossa on lisäksi teksti, otsikoltaan "conversation", joka suhteutuu Heideggerin esseeseen ikään kuin videon läpi nähtynä. Siinä pohditaan erityisesti kielen ja kääntämisen kysymyksiä. Muodoltaan se heijastelee videon materiaalin tiheyttä ja monitahoisuutta. "Epilogi" pyrkii lopulta kehimään auki "älykästä designia" koskevaa kysymystä, joka nousee esiin materiaalista. Tässä keskeisen viitepisteeni muodostaa Jean-Luc Nancyn struktion käsite.
