blue motion

2000, 30’, colour, dv
première: video projection OEB, Berlin 2001

A succession of moving images designed in the analogue videotechnic and resulting in a meditative submersion in space and colour in a fluid rhythm.


In the staircase hall of the building I projected the videowork on a big screen placed in front of the entrance and the street: inside the silence, outside the streetnoise (passengers, cars, trains) and played them off against each other.

video installation

Two opposite windows filmed without changing the light circumstances, each window, changing the diaphragm minute after minute. The films show the two windows progressively from the deepest darkness into disappearing in total brightness.
