Medium: Mixed media, Media Arts, Multimedia | 25 channel video installation, 16mm film (color, sound)
Size: see element sizes
Culture: Belgian
Physical Description: An installation which engages the viewer in a deconstructive tour of the film-production process. The video installation works back from the completed feature film to the individual shot segments of which it is constructed and, in the end, back to language itself. The fim is a documentary of the transition from summer to winter across Germany, Poland, and Russia.
