Paul Virilio: Speed

(Geschwindigkeit = Stillstand)
22 x 16,5 cm
26 Videostills/26 videostills,
edition 80













Christiane Baumgatner:

»Speed« deals with the abstraction of landscape, the reduction of environment to structure as well as the con-sequent translation of natural forms into artificial ones.
A video was made of neutral sceneries with fields, bushes and settlements at different speeds.
Suddenly the landscape appears to the human eye as an abstract flow of lines. It looks as if the coloured stripes thus formed have changed the landscape into a code by reducing it to its basic substance.
