Wien - Graz   Austria   1997

Siegrun APPELT  

Filming out of the window of a moving train, and using a fixed camera, on the stretch from Vienna to Graz produced this video. By putting the focus on infinity and a specific aperture, certain pictures are produced while the author is sitting back and allowing a quasi "automatic" picture production.

The landscape and the houses of Austria become fragments for the viewer. Sporadic emerging filming images of nature force one to abolish the limitations of space, at least for the lazy eye. (Suess)
