paul combrink: notities.


This I have written in the 30.448.203 th minute of my life and in the 1.055.657.526 th minute of our era.


Twelve-thirty in the afternoon of the fourth of March in the year nineteen hundred forty-nine I was born. For sure the midwife was not standing with a stopwatch in her hand when she cuts the umbilical cord. Most likely it is not accurately recorded and if it is exactly, than it is a matter of luck.

I capture my life when the sun reaches his highest point.  I keep the image that occurs on my retina. If it is really impossible, I do it a little later. My time and my imperfection are noticed more precise than the midwife did. Today I took a picture at hours. That is 1.827.228.717 seconds after the moment I was born. I did it in one sixtieth of a second: the 109.633.723.020 th part of my life. This way I safe what merged into other images.

I just captured the 1/228.565.996.875 th part of my life. hours was the time to hit. I capture what is gone. Acquired by another images. Fortunately I have the evidence of what occurred. I’ve stored it into two external hard disks and translated it into fourteen eras.

Just living my life. Images occur.

A day; a minute; a second; a tenth of one second; and the precise moment. It is almost impossible to pronounce. Image is beating language. The image I captured in my 508.164 th hour occured in the 1.466.852.979.839 second of Chinese calendar. 4 days ago the Chinese celebrated New Year.

Hrant Dink was born in Malatya 02/10/1403. He was murdered 07.07.1456 in Istanbul. Both by the Armenian era. Hrant Dink was murdered on my 21.141 th day. It is necessary to include Armenian time in my work. Anyhow, I keep in default.
