Structural Filmwaste. Dissolution 1

At first Structural Filmwaste seems to be a reaction to the aesthetics and methods of past Austrian avant-garde films. But then the footage gradually undergoes a transition to a whiteness which is obviously digital in nature. What were scratches in the film strip‘s emulsion now resemble the dark lines in a grainy video image. The analog film image is replaced by the electronic video image. Now the medium, the material itself proves to be illusory. (G. Weber)
