Floating shapes is a video artwork in which minimalistic video recordings were put together to create the visual experience of constant flowing. Using the low key technique, the focus is laid on the structure of different materials and surfaces in a poetic way. Starting point for this piece was the fascination for light effects that can be seen in nature, for instance when sunbeams fall on a wall or are reflected on the surface of water. These so-called ‘found animations’ were mingled with staged scenes in which one can recognize the silhouettes of persons. The video fragments could be short film scenes or fractions of our memory, inviting the viewer to make up his own story.
