UNTITLED (SLOW)

audiovisual installation

Formally and thematically, untitled (slow) is about overlaps – in an aesthethical meaning regarding the creation of the soundscape and the visual, as well as in a socio-philosophical way: the overlaps that occur in life daily and that defy our control. Social excessive demands and solitude, self-criticism and foreign claims, material necessities and spiritual quests.

Taking its initial inspiration from text fragments of Virginia Woolf’s “The Waves“, both video (by Stefanie Walk) and audio were created through associative processes and make excessive use of digital processing like fading, blurring and haziness, reversion and speed change.
The sonic base of the composition is built of feedbacks created by electric guitar and amps, which were edited and processed with synthesizers, filters and reverb. Other elements are field recordings and vocal patterns, both edited and processed, sometimes to the brink of distortion.
 Both visual and sonic part each artistically translated the idea of “overlaps“ into an atmosphere of immaterialness, surrealism, constant movement and transformation.

In support of this idea the reworked version of the installation featured the video being projected on acrylic glass hanging from the ceiling, making the image appear as floating in the room.

Untitled (slow) was nominated for the European Soundart Award at Internationale Marler Medienkunst-Preise 2016 at Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl.
