The camera moves in a spiral along the ceiling: it takes up its circular form by tracing out the seams between two elements of the ceiling; rectangular lamps emerge one after another like a schematic depiction of sunbeams or the spokes a wheel; parallel to this, the soundtrack evokes atmospheric, resonant “drops”— at least one of a countless number of associations.
The video BAUMEISTER looks at the deserted interior of ORF's Studio Dornbirn. Planned and built by architect Gustav Peichl from 1969 to 1972. Claudia Larcher’s work generates a continuum of space and time that does not actually exist in reality.
