Kosmos
10 July 2019
video, color, 4:3, stereo, BE, 2017, 9’36”

a music film by Oo.

Kosmos focuses on the building blocks of the digital and analog film image: pixels and grain. By manipulating the data of recordings of light patterns and the resulting granular textures, the images form a tactile crossbreed between analog and digital. The music establishes a dialogue between the acoustic and electronic voice. An audiovisual conversation of 9’36”, or symphony of 14400 abstract compressionist paintings, emerges.
