For his exhibition at Frankfurter Kunstverein, Jeremy Shaw has realized a new version of the work This Transition Will Never End.  This video archive consists of a wide variety of appropriated footage in which a vortex, or any such tunnelling, inward-moving image, is used to represent the slippage of time or a transition from one reality to another. Incorporating scenes that range from low budget television shows to Oscar-winning Hollywood movies, This Transition Will Never End serves as a ongoing catalogue of the various styles and techniques used to create this commonplace depiction of a ubiquitous phenomenon that remains, as-of-yet, impossible to document.
