People need stories and images in order to create order within the world's chaos. Emma van der Put (1988, Den Bosch) provides us with those images. She regards the world as a ready-made film set for her observations. Van der Put doesn't stage things; with her camera she enters into situations that 'happen' to her. She sees something—a situation or a place which evokes wonder, which is alienating or simply gives rise to aversion—and becomes fascinated by it. Then she starts shooting a film. A striking aspect of her videos is the ease with which Emma van der Put makes day-to-day reality abstract and allows it to have greater meaning than is visible at first glance. While filming she remains detached from the things going on around her in order to maintain an overall view of the situation. At the same time she tries—by way of the camera and the technical possibilities that it offers—to fathom the latent information held in brief passing moments. Throughout the editing process she then gives shape to the relationships among the images until they actually express, in terms of their casualness, something about a location, a situation, an occurrence. Because of the rhythm of her constructions, the viewer is prompted to observe on his own and give room to the imagination.
