On Instagram I post short videos as @satzstuecke in which I limit myself to voice and facial expressions. These narrative fragments integrate into the feed of my followers. For example, they appear between political posts, party photos from Gallery Weekend, or dance videos. I have no influence on the composition of the feed of my followers and yet I use the videos to contact, comment, or confuse the flow of images.

You can see a rustling, turquoise-colored surface. It is not clear if it is a wall or a floor. The picture resembles an aquarium infested with algae. You lose the overview. There are lines on it that are reminiscent of scarred cuts and impressions from bygone times.

You hear steps that create a rhythm. The sound of a scratching noise indicates that new lines are emerging at the same time. I walk the room in a certain choreography. At the same time I say different, repetitive sentences, the regular structure of which is interrupted in two places by a short chant. It is not clear what reality I am in.

Why do i hate blue? Red Blue is about facts, allegations and premonitions. It’s about doubts you have about things that are. The picture shows the convergence of the colors red and blue. A voice shows polarities. It connects the colors with properties, such as mean or exciting, and mentally draws connections to a system in which we are. In the course of the film, these classifications and properties are reversed or even blurred. Influencing. Inclusion and exclusion. Mixing. When, how and where must, can or should be acted?

The narration of a real, but dream-like experience is combined with the image of four garbage bags lined up in a landscape. A garbage bag moves easily through the person inside. Over time, you can hardly avoid recognizing the other bags as protagonists of the story.

The words I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they are articulated in different intonations and order by a person who seems to be stuck up to half of his face in a pile of coal. At the same time, the coal is thrown forward and it is rummaged around wildly towards the end of the film. This results in different word and meaning variations.

Imperatives emerge between the person’s communication with itself and with the imaginary other. The person’s face is never fully visible. The video runs at double speed with the same pitch.

Rooms and Doors

The scene takes place in an old attic that is divided into several rooms. The vertical roof beam in the picture keeps the viewer at a distance. A figure with his back to / towards the viewer enters the room. She moves in a bent position, sometimes almost upright, sometimes crawling again. The figure moves from room to room. When the figure leaves the visible pictorial space, it is only audible. It re-enters the field of vision and then disappears again into the rooms.
