Synopsis
Inter-Images 1- 3
These three short films – Retardation, Streams of Balance, Antizoetrope – constitute an attempt to prevent the simple perception of what is depicted by utilizing various techniques of masking, thereby intensifying the imagination of the viewer. The different "masking" methods consist of the continuous flickering of the components of a grid, the mechanical, indifferent movement of the camera disconnected from the spectacle, and the pausing of individual, brief moments of what is seen on the screen.

(Dora Maurer)


"Speed is a relation between events" (P. Virilio).
This film is an attempt to slow down the movements by masking the image. It consists of three parts:
1. Retardation: A single movement of the head lasting 1 second = 25 frames, extended to 5 minutes by the 10 x 25-fold repeating of this frame, cut up in 25 pieces and masked. 25 computer generated sounds accompany the picture series in (random) reiterations.
2. Streams of Balance: An autonomous movement of the camera, showing a close-up of a body detail interferes partly with the movements of a dancer who follows his internally controlled shifting of weight. The film image never shows precisely the status of the body which however is being followed by the music.
3. Antizoetrop: With much effort and movement during the shooting nearly static pictures of a three minute boxing match are filmed. The soundtrack consists of the original sounds of the match.

(Dora Maurer)
