IT'S A DANCE

by Viktoria SCHMID new filmmaker
2014 / Video / color / sound / 1S / 2' 30

Fascination, uncertainty, fear: a school event and thus a restless, out of the ordinary hormonal state. Using clips from the 1990s coming-of-age TV show My So-Called Life, Schmid reveals the stereotypical portrayal of the adolescent quest for identity. She formally connects the anxiety of puberty with an aesthetics of imperfection: gorgeous and garish pixelation resulting from interrupted downloads decomposes the video image – sound and narration are in a state of continual (auto)-dissolution.
