Timegarden 02

USA 2004-2005, 60 min

Claudia Hart’s series “Timegarden” reflects on the embedding of technology in modern life and man’s attempt to dominate nature instead of adapting to it. By exploring the aesthetic possibilities of digital time dilation, growth algorithms and fractal geometry, the work visualises the purely subjective nature of time. In “Timegarden 02”, the four seasons are presented simultaneously in 60 minutes, abstracted into unstable digital representations and seamlessly looped to celebrate the relentlessly repetitive dance of existence. The soundscape contributed by Kurt Hentschläger pulsates gently like a heartbeat and adds another layer to the complex temporal web.

Phantom Horizons

The on-going screening series Phantom Horizons presents digital as well as analogue works that question the paradigm of linear perspective, seeking a new kind of “status perspective” [Bedeutungsperspektive]. The latter was a development of ancient and medieval painting, in which the size of figures is determined by their hierarchical significance. Extending this approach using the methodology of deconstruction and the possibilities of contemporary film creation, the presented works open up multifaceted, unseen horizons.
