Stura river, Piedmont, Italy
Semi submerged digital print on vinyl

About this work

In 2008, the Regional Arts Council in Piedmont, Italy invited a group of artists to produce “art in nature.” Wolf responded with Chance, a digital print on vinyl submerged into the Stura River.

Working with light and the environment, Wolf juxtaposed the naturally flowing water of the river with a still image of a rim of water. For Wolf, the ever-flowing water stood as a metaphor for the “river of time” while the still image gave onlookers the ‘chance’ to pause and reflect upon the frozen image in the moment.

In so doing, Wolf merged the movement of time with the idleness of time.

Chance remained on-site for three month.
