Galerie Frei, Cologne, Germany

expanded cinema / installation / performance

The expanded cinema performance FACES was our first experiment using 16mm and 8mm projectors and live-sound. It was developed in collaboration with media-artist and musician Jakob Penca as well as the musician Alex Kretzer.

Using old 16mm teaching films from Germany from the 70s we built a story of evolution beginning with insects going to the universe, humans attempt to travel with them by doing rituals in nature or using drugs... ending up in abstract hand processed painted film and live distortion of the film by burn.

16mm / 8mm Film projections were destroyed and modified live by sound, followed by projections of film which was processed with all kind of analogue techniques, such as with paint, chlorine, hydrochloric acid, etc..
