“Static Frantic – viral”, an experimental collage film. Using found footage material processed by scratching and painting, the film captures the mood of uncertainty and isolation in the ‘Corona era’. The basic mood of nothing goes on characterizes the visual structure and montage of the film, as does the feeling of hopelessness and being trapped. The film title refers to an essay by Paul Virilio, whose diagnosis of a technological collapse in today’s global-digital acceleration of everyday life here takes on a new, a “viral” topicality. The film combines the theoretical-philosophical thought with my personal mood.
The film was made as part of the project grant “Hessen innovativ neu eröffnen”, awarded by the Hessische Kulturstiftung.
