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]

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.
