vertical on my own

16 mm film transferred to HD large-scale video projection with sound
2 minutes 55 seconds

A large horizontal shadow fills the frame from edge to edge. We never see who makes the shadow. We know that only something vertical can cast a horizontal shadow. A human standing upright in the arctic winter throws extremely long shadows. This is due to the fact that the sun sits low on the horizon so far north on the globe. In the arctic winter, the moon is also a central source of light for living creatures. The shadow moves, opens and closes on the crispy snowscape. The shadow questions its source whether it consists of one or more or whether who is supporting who. The soundtrack is one unedited human voice.
