T like a cross

audiovisual installation // 3 channel video, 5.1 sound

T like a cross is an experimental film, a composition with images, a visual and sonic poem. It deals with the state of zero-gravity in the sense of detachment: the human being being detached from environment, from other people, from itself. 
Super 8 mm film material, the panoramic setup of 3 screens and a multichannel soundscape have been used to create a dense space for this fragile condition.


a T like a cross
I flew
I lost my soul above
the atlantic
a tribute to something
long forgotten
and parts of me
are still
out there
