Multimedia installation with videos, machines and slide shows

It blinks, it clatters and flickers. A pile of strange machines is populating the space. Projections and sounds mix to a hissing noise, sometimes a single sound breaks out. Inspired by the filmic oeuvre of Fritz Lang, the artists Marte Kiessling and Almut Grypstra explore the space with multimedia experimental set ups. The artists work as constructors by programming their own artistic access to the parabolic space which is opened up by Lang in his works, especially “Metropolis”. They combine video, sculpture, installation and drawing to their own system. The different medias overlap, gateways and dissonances are formed. While the artists where exploring and experimenting, numerous objects and miniloops where collected. The artists link fragments and observations to a new model.

The installation contains the videos parts and pixels part two – Utopia and Metropolis

Works by Marte Kiessling – videos “parts and pixels”, single screens with animated figures, three photo slide series, one hand drawn slide series, in total 244 slides (together with Almut Grypstra), monitors with videos made in Japan and India, sound, light:
