Walls - Video Installation

Joanna Hoffmann

The installation was realised thanks to the Fellowship for foreign artists awarded by the Konrad Wolf Film and Television Academy (Hochschule fur Film und Fernsehen) in Potsdam–Babelsberg. The project was supervised by Prof. Zaki Omar (Scenography with New Media), the Department of Scenography.

The loss of the center, horizon, natural, normal or even the human characterizes our daily life in the urbanized environment. Speed and nomadism, flexibility and reconfigurability are part of this experience. Despite its futuristic alterations, the city preserves its historical unity by diverse stories written in its walls, by the skyline drawn in our common memory.
The city is both organization of space and embodiment of time.
The installation “Walls” merges video material gathered in Berlin, Poznan and Calcutta. This combination suggests also other possibilities.(...)
The movement is an important factor in the analysis of human relation to the city walls. Sometimes it is a ghostly journey through a building; sometimes they are walls that flow passing the observer. In another case the liquid architecture forms a human head floating in some abstract abyss.
In our constantly expanding and more and more transparent world, walls still protect, limit, unite and define both our surrounding and its experience.
