Slope and incline oscillate almost continuously. First of all, in 'Hang und Neigung 5' (2001) there is a thicket in which the exploring eye gets lost in the filigree tangle of the branches, but physical orientation in relation to the picture space is tilted as well. The view of the slope is almost from above in the photograph, and as such actually promises an overall view, but it undermines this by the lack of any clues or orientation points in the landscape detail shown.
The lamp, whose alien quality emerges imperceptibly, but then persistently, introduces another kind of (dis)order into this entanglement: it identifies the strip of light in the top right of the image as a stepped path from which the image disintegrates and rearranges itself again. - The distinctions that the lamp is actually claiming are no longer clear; in fact the lamp is now entirely responsible for the confusion. The lamp, as a bright point, at least promises the possibility of orientation, so the (visual) thicket and the sense of being lost in it have necessarily to be thought about and seen through the path. Orientation no longer holds here, because its different possibilities run up against each other, creating another kind of wandering that now takes place within the thicket of the image. Here orientation opens up to the quite different form of being somewhere without actually getting there.
