selected clips from the workgroup "LOOP", SD_video, PAL, 4:3, sound, 2001 — 2010

The workgroup LOOP consists of many short video sequences. The length of each single sequence takes not more than 2 seconds of time. The narrative strength of these short moments of movement is achieved through the continuous repetition of one basic sequence (loop). The length of the stories is variable as the spectator determines the time to watch the videos. "Loop" is not like a conventional movie where a progressive form of narration develops the story. Each sequence is more like one image, which was extended with the factor of time.
