This is a five minute video-projection I did for the festival of contemporary art Ostrale09 in Dresden, Germany. ostrale-zentrum.de/ostrale09_geruechte.html
Based on the available space of the over 100 years old building of the "Ostragehege", I decided to use one of the column-like air-pipes as canvas for the projection.
These columns are multi-perspective by nature. The video-animation refers to this and finally breaks free to unfold a new dimension.
The projection cuts through the room, so people have to cross it and by that become part of it.
The changing of perspective, as well as of surface properties and qualities - by altering light and shadows - is to challenge the perception of known structures in time and space.
Moreover the video-loop deals with growth and decay, the ever ongoing fight between life and death.
