The piece „Heartline“ is dealing with the observation of fairground rides from a perspective outside of the actual area assigned for the fairground. It shows how these massive machines extract themselves from their urban surrounding in a kind of sudden escalation and develop an independent existence, to thereafter reintegrate almost invisibly back into a still frame. The individual films depict those movement miniatures.
Future of Memories is concerned with the tensionful relations of pasts and futures, compromising everything in between: the lived present, the intensity of presence, the wish to remember things long forgotten and the desire to anticipate and realize – vergegenwärtigen – things not thinkable in the now – and how is artificial intelligence shaping the means and ends of remembrance?
Different artistic and theoretic approaches look at archival practices, mnemonic techniques, storytelling methods and narrative practices in various media and formats.
