Handmade
2007

A snowstorm that doesn't want to stop. Rapidly melting icebergs. Ceaselessly whirling tornadoes. Three simulations of extreme weather conditions resulting from climate change are re-staged with food and household utensils in Handmade and their production recorded on video. Three times the rotating aquarium emerges out of the blackness of the projection screen to reveal a dramatic weather event in its interior. That busy hands occasionally appear reflected in the aquarium's glass walls refers seemingly incidentally to the central aesthetic question of construction. This is not about the production of conclusive effects. Even if the monotonous sound of the cordless screwdriver which is responsible for turning the aquarium, drowns out much of the usual sounds of experimental production it delivers a unique, psychedelic soundtrack, which prevents the interruption of the visibility of the handiwork that completely encloses the illusory space.

Ein nicht enden wollender Schneesturm. Rasant schmelzende Eisberge. Rastlos wirbelnde Tornados. Drei Simulationen extremer Unwetterzustände im Zeitalter des Klimawandels werden in Handmade mit Lebensmitteln und Haushaltsgeräten inszeniert und dabei im Akt der Herstellung abgefilmt. Dreimal taucht ein auf einer rotierenden Scheibe stehendes Aquarium aus dem Schwarz der Leinwand auf und enthüllt in seinem Inneren je ein dramatisches Wetterereignis. Dass sich in seinen Glaswänden gelegentlich auch geschäftige Hände spiegeln, verweist dabei scheinbar beiläufig auf die künstlerisch zentrale Ebene eines ‚Making of‘. Denn es geht hier nicht um schlüssige Effekte. Selbst wenn die monotone Geräuschkulisse des Akkuschraubers, der als Antrieb unter die Scheibe montiert ist, einen Großteil der übrigen Herstellungsgeräusche der Experimentalanordnungen schluckt und einen ganz eigenen, psychedelisch anmutenden Sountrack liefert, verhindert die Brechung über die Sichtbarkeit der Handhabung, dass sich der Raum der Illusion ganz schließt.
