AUTOPLAY

Posted by

 

 

A dance mashup, a bastard pop collage stolen from 1000 different sources: In AUTOPLAY, the copy & paste button becomes the leitmotif. Every movement, every sound, every image is an objet trouvé taken from the World Wide Web. From contemporary choreography to the Harlem Shake, from the video game Fortnite to shampoo commercials, from the selfie style on Instagram to the globally marketed pose of Michelangelo’s David – everything is recombined, reorganized and intermixed.

Henk Heuer’s and Moritz Stumm’s -work Ibogain, modifies states of consciousness through audio visual stimulants. By incorporating acoustic illusions such as binaural beats, the Shepard-Risset-Glissando, and time-shifting polyrhythms, a psychoacoustic experiment  emerges that is expanded by hypnotic, geometrical projections in the three-dimensional space.
Extracted from an African tropical plant, the hallucinogen Ibogan is administered in shamanic rituals and leads to a waking dream-consciousness. Sound and rhythm have always been used for healing and the enhancement of perception. Simultaneously, there is a belief in the enhancement of the human being through technology and science which has taken on religious traits. With the help of neuronal stimulation and so-called brain-computer interfaces, a new-, more efficient and intelligent human being is supposed to be created. The cooperation of Heuer and Stumm oscillates between these poles of archaic spirituality and the current tendencies of a supposed rational optimization of human beings. The cultural and psychic aspects of sound and music are recurrent motifs in Moritz Stumms artistic work.

In Bullpit you can see a pogoing group of policemen in riot police uniform. It is unclear in which context the scene takes place. It oscillates between a brutal clash and the silly scramble of little boys. Slapsticism and aggressiveness go hand in hand. The slow motion makes the movements seem dance-like, even tender. Violence is replaced by play, the street battle is replaced by a loving brawl. The police as guardians of security act in an irrational act of excess. The whole thing is a border crossing that contradicts the determination of the police officers as guardians of law and order. The video suggests a utopia in which state power has become obsolete and is only directed against itself. Demonstrators fighting policemen are familiar images. A strange image are policemen who fight against policemen, the opponent is himself. In BULLPIT the horizon forms the borderline between violence and lust.

„The Mosh documents a form of ritualized aggression. The camera takes the position of the singer and looks into the crowd. The individual dissolves into a sea of people.

 

 

 

 

 

UNSTERN

UNSTERN

In kaleidoscopic scenes, “Unstern” illuminates the very moment before catastrophe strikes; it is a blend of violence, nationalist propaganda, incipient battle cries, machismo and insecurity. Expressive images form narrative sequences of motion and performative scenes. A sequence of conditions, sensations and motives results in an image of a society on the edge of an abyss and the onset of a new era.
