Project Description

FOREVER (2015-2017)
People who do creative work often speak about allowing creativity to flow through them. They speak about becoming a channel for creativity to flow through. In FOREVER, I juxtapose this concept of creativity with the three-act structure, a standard and prevailing model in screenwriting. There’s a continuous, ever-lasting, and abstract flow on one hand; and a concrete formula, a temporal entity, on the other. The former is represented metaphorically by images of pipes, which I shot in 2015 (Neptune Fountain, Berlin), and the later (three-act structure) is expressed through footage from “How to Write a Movie Script”, a video-course with actor and producer Ron Becks. The work’s accompanying sound is taken from “Underwater” (2002), a mixed-media piece composed by Per Bloland.
