Timo Klos – To Mark Time
The series shows bus stations at old people`s homes in Germany. Many patients suffering from dementia follow their memories and come here to wait for the bus. However, the bus will never come, because the stations are fake. After a peroid of time the residents can’t remember what they are waiting for and go back inside. First these places give a sad impression, but they seem to take away the inhabitants inner unrest as well. They sometimes become familiar meeting points, places to sit, drink coffee and talk.
