Made for Tegel: Flights of Fancy a project organised by Jaspar Joseph-Lester, Susanne Prinz and Julie Westerman. First shown at an event hosted by Verein zur Förderung von Kunst und Kultur am Rosa- Luxemburg-Platz screened at the Kino Babylon in June 2012. The piece is featured in the publication Tegel: Propositions & Speculation which builds on a series of events, exhibitions and publications that have been realised through cross- cultural collaboration between artists based in the UK and Germany.
The film considers the physical and psychological dimensions of person and place, using episodic and kaleidoscopic imagery. A speculation on the ways in which the experience of place impacts on the sense-making of the person, colour and surface combine and flatten in the image plane to produce the semblance of a stained glass window: light, colour, pattern, and space combine to produce a new articulation of past experience in the present. In the mirroring a manner of cut or fold is made, where imagery collides in a central plane to create a third space. There is no anchor for the gaze, as the image plane evolves and dissolves in front of the eye, and sound and image combine in an oscillation of reverie interrupted by reality, the conscious and the unconscious, as the subjects inner and outer worlds collide.
