In his photographic projects Daan Paans (1985, NL) investigates the concept of time. He is interested in the way time - past, present and future - shapes our interpretation of the world. His long-term projects focus on the human incapacity to domesticate and control time. This resulted in the projects Letters from Utopia, ‘Perhaps it might be said rightly...’ and his latest work Rhinoceros. Letters from Utopia is a photographic research that studies groups who wish to extend the human life span extremely or even aim to become immortal. For this project Paans visited five different movements and their key players who have a shot at an utopian world order. The stories range from an occult belief of the past to a scientific outlook for the future.
Paans applies his artistic research to his topics by connecting several multi layered case studies to it. These cases reveal questions on the topic from different perspectives and time frames, using the three stages of past - present - future as a guideline. In the end it results in a static, objectifying and almost scientific visual lingo, but the outcome of Paans’ research only shows the tip of the iceberg. An image nearly functions as a gateway. You can perceive it as a form of evocation, it indirectly links to the subject, but it opens up a brand new world of thoughts.
