MONOSCAPE

2017 / 2K / color / sound / 1S / 16' 41

Equipment and loading mechanisms in a harbor area wander in constant motion, rhythmically and purposefully along the quay. ISO containers in various colors are lifted and placed, in between moments of motionlessness and stagnation. A small number of dock workers in orange warning jackets stand in the middle of the gantry cranes - tiny figures compared to the bodies of the working machines. As night falls, the scenery changes; only the shadows and silhouettes of the continuous mechanical processes remain. MONOSCAPE shows fragments, forms and movements of an industrial cycle. In the calm documentary images, the processes of the machines take on a repetitive and omnipresent dimension. Detached from their intended context, they seem like autonomous objects within a mechanized landscape, resting in their movement.
