New Website Up

I have a new website/design. Welcome to Fleischfilm V4.0. The old sites are still up (except V1 which didn’t look so good really) but of course won’t be updated: Fleischfilm V3 & Fleischfilm V2

As you can see I arrived at web 2.0 and now have a blog of sorts integrated (thanks to wordpress). Also, you can now comment on my posts, films, music, whatever. If I don’t like your comment though I’ll delete it. All my films are now embedded.

Electrophotographies

While working on ‘Energie!’ I developed my own method for making electrophotographies (or kirlian photographies as they are also called). I used a 30.000 volt transformer to expose photo paper with high voltage electricity discharges. Here are a few electrophotographies that I made. Some of them I used in the film. They were exhibited at the following galleries:

2006 Maschinenblut – V8 in Karlsruhe [Germany]
2007 Energie! – Kunstverein Friedrichstadt in Berlin [Germany]
2007 Kunst in Serie (group exhibition) – t27 in Berlin [Germany]
2008 Energie! – O’Artoteca in Milan [Italy]
2008 Erosion (group exhibition) – Klaipeda Exhibition Hall in Klaipeda [Lithuania]
2010 Collectif d’en Face (group exhibition) in Rouen [France]
2012 High Voltage – onder hoogspanning (group exhibition) in Heusden-Zolder [Belgium]

Die Maschine liebt dich auf ihre Art [2000]

Die Maschine liebt dich auf ihre Art [2000]
The machine loves you her way [2000]

Pleasing and comforting electronic compositions. ‘Quién Sabe’ makes you want to sing along. ‘Disguise In Love With You’ seduces with a modulated smile. ‘Krachendes Holz’ almost succeeds in its secret wish to become solid matter. ‘Tesla Coil’ makes its point in a quiet and thoroughly subtle way. ‘Tokyo2’ slowly drills into your head to finally discharge its electric charm full force right into your brain.

Energie! [2007]

HD, 5:03 minutes

From a mere technical point of view the TV/video screen comes alive by a controlled beam of electrons in the cathode ray tube. For ‘Energie!’ an uncontrolled high voltage discharge of 30.000 volts exposes multiple sheets of photographic paper which are then arranged in time to create new visual systems of electron organization.

Music by Jens Thiele.

Kosmos [2004]

16mm, 5:11 minutes

The mystery of the crystals under closer examination. What is it that makes them possess magic powers as claimed by mystics of all ages? Through growing crystals directly on film their mystical qualities shine straight to the screen. Unfiltered, only aided by light which gracefully breaks its rays into rich visual textures.

Friendly Fire [2003]

16mm, 7:40 minutes

Burned filmstrips meet light and invade the screen with structures of residue, ashes, flames and destruction. New landscapes appear in a state of disintegration through fire. The former carrier of conserved imagery is now in full bloom of organic splendor. The lifeless filmstrips have been resurrected.

An interpretation / remix of my expanded cinema piece ‘Feuer Frei – Open Fire’.

Friendly Fire was financed in part by Jens Thiele.
