abstracts

2017

 

This collection of „abstracts“ was produced during a month-long stay at the Rimbun Dahan residency in Kuang (Malaysia).

They are a direct response to the surroundings and produced with no particular goal in mind other than hone skills and gain knowledge about the place.

Sketch for reactive (tangible) poetry machine

By putting coins in the pocket of the jacket the pictured text will disappear only to bring forward a new creation of words gradually until they are disappeared again.

 

Otherwise the residency had a strong documentary focus and led to the production of a documentary about the Thaipusam festival.

Also an interview for an animated documentary on the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons was filmed (in collaboration with IPPNW). The film can be viewed here.

citizens

Experimental video

Year: 2015

Duration: 1’40“ // resp. 20“

In „citizens“ temporal and spatial structures around arriving people and playing children dissolve.
The look of the city can be guessed during a brief moment when the temporal axis is shifting and one catches a brief glimpse of one of the buildings.
It is hinted at the ambiguity that these people have to deal with. The scene is situated in a non-defined „city haven“.
