Weisse Wand (blank canvas). 2009.
looped 4.01mins, low resolution digital film footage and sound.
The footage is of a ‘bill-board’; an advertising hoarding that is made of a fabric that would usually be adorned with adverts. It was filmed in Hackney, in the autumn of 2006. It has now returned to its original function as an advertising display. It uses lo-resolution digital film footage and the sound was recorded at the same time as filming.
The work takes the fabric of an advertising hoarding, the raw material as such, and subverts its usual use-function to produce a sound and visual work. The local traffic passing nearby, recorded at the same event as filming, seems to affect the rippling fabric and produces a sound and visual combination that is surprisingly hypnotic in itself.
