The verklärte Stadt - Concept.
The environment is an entity that involves all parameters of stimuli. Our experience of the environment is so much intertwined with multiple sensations that we hardly detect its appearances. By distorting the scale of our perception, we can transform our environment, our reality, into something manipulable. Fold up, rip off, crumple up, kick off and throw away the surrounding landscape and soundscape like a piece of paper.
Transfiguration - Sequence A
By disfiguring the environment into a small object and placing it within the original environment, we observe from above something in which we have been relentlessly embedded. We are now experiencing the disfigured exterior within the original land/soundscape. The disfigured image of the original environment is an abnormal materialization of stimuli, and we look at this strange lump, which is still a part of us, as if it were a tumor growing on the skin.
