Is the image we see on screen in thrall to order or is it an eruption of visual chaos? Siegfried A. Fruhauf presents a volatile and frenetically-changing painting of a grid of squares that fill the image space at different angles and in varying sizes and quantities. The result is a compelling, almost physical experience.
Is the image we see on screen controlled by order or is it an eruption of visual chaos? Siegfried A. Fruhauf presents a volatile and frenetically-changing painting of a grid of squares that fill the image space at different angles and in varying sizes and quantities. Drawing on the tradition of structural film, this experiment sees the director working with the materiality and space of the movie, for which the solid contours of the lines cease to be sufficient. The result is a fundamentally compelling, almost physical experience.
