2001 / Betacam SP / color / sound / 1S / 4' 00

A journey along electric power lines. The camera, pointed skyward, takes them out of the context of everyday perception, reducting them to form, to line. right from the beginning, the unadorned images seem almost abstract as they intersect the picture, and the visual planes ocasionnaly merge. The abstraction progresses slowly until solely graphic elements are recognizable. Sound and image were created in close cooperation, and the visual lines correspond to the music, are assimilated and reflected by it.
.airE can be interpreted as a study of everyday perception, though on a different level it is also an essay on abstraction. Is a concrete image abstract when removed from its context, or does this label apply only after digital alteration and reduction to basic graphic patterns. (Barbara Pichler).
