ambient noise, 2004

In a series of 14 interior takes, we see automatic shades slowly rising. While closed, the light is muted, there are shadows of trees swaying gently in front of the windows outside. Gradually the "screens" begin to rise, the image becomes vibrant, what is outside comes into view. We hear birds, the scraping of feet, the sound of trains. This DV is an indirect homage to the experience of cinema, to the film "Wavelength" by Michael Snow, and our relation to the inner and outer world.
