STADT IN FLAMMEN

by SCHMELZDAHIN
1984 / Super 8mm or 16 mm or Beta SP / coul / son / 5' 00



Film material is subjected to biochemical processes by burying it in the garden, storing it in a pond, or overheating it. The results of these natural processes of decay or aging are then copied back onto film and thus conserved in the state of their dissolution. In "Stadt in Flammen" the scenes melt due to overheating, producing an infernal image impression of disappearance. The images no longer show a figuratively represented scene, but rather its dissolution as a temporal process
