ALBUM

by Matthias MÜLLER
2004 / Betacam SP / color / sound / 1S / 24' 30

ALBUM is natured by my personal arsenal of memories.
Numerous moving images, collected by me over the years without any particular purpose in mind, are the visual source of this collage: flotsam and jetsam floating down a river, a plastic bag swirling around a wire, a shirt hanging in an open window. These motifs encounter each other, as do pictures in a photo album.
Inserted texts revolve around processes of memory, appropriation and loss. Their recurring themes stay fragments - like single sentences lifted from a diary. They accompany and temporarily possess the images, only to ultimately leave them as they are: open, ambiguous and autonomous.
