Factory Study – your instruments (2013)

single-channel video installation (HD video, sound, 13’28”)

Factory Study – your instruments shows video portraits of the musicians of a local brass-band with their instruments on location of a giant industrial wine factory compound.Beside of the video portrait each band member was asked to play a personally chosen tone as long as they are able to.The artificial nature of the instrument is presented as pure beauty which emphasises the enormous visual contrast between human being and the industrial compound.
This project was realised in cooperation with a brass band in Weinviertel (Lower Austria).
