bioskop is a walk-in installation by videoartist llillevan, composer zeitblom and architects christian fuchs and jörg lammers [on architektur].

for the cinematic installation bioskop the artists involved explored the history of film, its scores and the cinema as a setting within the media and have dealt with all these facets intensively and extensively. artefacts from films and scores were processed, collaged and densely knit into a meta-film. the formal basic elements of the medium film are the central issue of bioskop. the result could therefore be called an absolute film.

alosio avaz:

football performance

a football field. somewhere. four people meet. have they met once before? is it about strangers in a familiar environment or familiarity in a strange environment? or just about doppelgangers? video projections break through the space, a visual diary of a journey impressions from another reality. these pictures full of hope and optimism raise questions in the people on stage, questions about their wishes, their longings, their fears, their frustrations, their failures, their successes and their identity. a constant dialogue between these two worlds is produced, in which the ball is in play until you reach your goal. but what is the goal?
