Grand Canyon explores a typical souvenir image of a round trip through the States, a snapshot in front of the Grand Canyon. In this video, Schnitt irritates our vision habits. The spectator's view is uneasily searching for a fix point where they can focus and is therefore eventually happy to see the bird, which appears from time to time in the canyon and gives us assurance, that this is not a frozen image. The viewer is forced to observe a clichéd holiday snapshot more intensively. In this video loop the focus shifts from the exchangeable person to nature. How many of those kind of pictures do exist, which are nothing more than a proof for "Look! I was here!" ? But nature doesn't care. Life goes on.
