video installation

video trailer


The starting point of the video installation "art yard" is the eponymous written version of a performance idea by conceptual artist Walter de Maria. The idea formulated in May 1960 of a hitherto unrealized happening describes the emergence of a pit and is presented as a 3D animation.

Sound and image are both based on instruction pieces.


Soundtrack: cut-up version of 'Musicwords (for Phill Niblock)' (1978) by Jackson Mac Low
