The video: 'DEFROSTING DEVICE FOR APPARENTLY MEANINGLESS INK STAINS'

Maria Korporal [Germany] - 10th edition
The video has been created on a piece of “musique concrete” which deals with the theme of incommunicability. Composer Emiliano Pietrini (Globoscuro) constructed his music on a series of “nonsense” dialogues embraced by a carpet of sounds created with a toy piano, vocals, analog synthesizer, theremin, piano, field recordings, self-made metal percussions and old talking toys with dead batteries. Following this sound trail, video artist Maria Korporal created a visual walk in the main railway station of Berlin – a walk along a platform where all lines loose themselves in the center. Out of this vanishing point a crystal is born, in which walking and talking people are captured. The crystal turns around and splits up into more fragments, then melts into slow moving ink-like stains where all communication seems to flow together. At the end of the platform, the liquid forms become a crystal again, opening itself for a journey to continue in new times and new spaces.
