The creation of Hic et Nunc [Latin: Here and Now] project was specific to the Dreifaltigkeitskirche of Konstanz (Germany). A church belonging to a monastery built in 1268 where a congregation of Augustinian hermits was established within the walls of the city near the shore of Lake Constance. King Sigismund was a guest of the monastery between 1417 and 1418 during the Council of Constance, as a way of thanking the monastery the king donated frescoes for the interior of the church. In the frescoes the council is represented with the king and other participants of the Council. The catholic church of Dreifaltigkeitskirche is one of the most important religious monuments of the city and one of the icons of Constance.

Hic et Nunc is a collection put together by the author. It consist of the photo-documentation of the trips of the artists participating in the Meeting Point exhibition in Constanza (Germany) and Kreuzlingen (Switzerland).

600 years ago, delegates from all over Christendom travelled to the Council of Constance on foot, on horseback, by carriage or by boat. The trip was slow, uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous. Today we can travel across the Alps in a few hours without much effort and we can easily reach our destination by plane. In Hic et Nunc, all artists participating in the Meeting Point exhibition were asked to document their trip to Konstanz through disposable cameras. The artists made their trips to the city and also illustrated it. These cameras were processed in Konstanz and installed on Bible-bearing tables inside the Dreifaltigkeitskirche church as a photographic archive of distant places, but all taken with the same destination.

In addition, throughout the city, a selection of those photographs was displayed, arranged in windows and glass doors to create a second tour, apart from the main one, with the inputs of the invited artists.
