A cinematic interpretation of the “bookface” style.
This short film was conceived in collaboration with the creative team of Erlangen City’s public library.
For two days we were carefully lining up faces, objects and body parts – each time trying to create a perfect melding of life and art.
Client: Stadtbibliothek Erlangen
Filmed, directed and edited by Jacco Kliesch
Music: Rolegur by Osker Wyld
The term "Corpus Libris" has become a synonym for "bookface".
"Corpus" is Latin for "body" and "Libris" means "in the books".
