Speed Crystal

collaboration with Bernd Härpfer

PAL 4:3, stereo
4 min 36 sec

A fixed camera shot taken from the gondola of a Ferris wheel shows the interlocking rotations during the ride.

Through increasing temporal shifting of individual image sections, the original scene dissolves into contrasting, increasingly fast rotating colour surfaces.

The soundtrack of the film recording spreads into a polyphonic sound texture, which seems to increase steadily in speed.

Image and sound thus merge in an abstract dramaturgy that creates the illusion of infinite acceleration.
