WAVESCAPE 72

2005

Slide show with cross fading and sound – a film in slow motion / 80 frames x 2

Sound: composition made from recordings (sea and voices) on Canary Islands, Rundgang Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main

In the setup for the open format of Emotionale Passagenthe work is expanded as:

WAVESCAPE 72 Reloaded

2011; A film in slow motion with live intervention, LAI, Institute of America Latina in Vienna, Europa-Saal

2012; A film in slow motion, WUK Vienna 

The work quotes parallel worlds, transposing elements of multimedia descent: figures, words and phrases extracted from Saint-Exupéry’s most famous novella, weather signals and tide reports of Gran Canaria, notes. A sort of transporting sense arises. The background is built from a video exported frame by frame. The wave is deconstructed into several abstract paintings which are intervened each by single collages, mixed media. The cross-fading creates the illusion of a film in slow motion, intensified by the sound as a mind-rhythm or a take-off to another world.
