Addicted

A layered sequence of mirrored shots depicting a dance performance, pushing the human eye to its limit. The dancer begins to fade into the whirl of her tentacle-like skirt, becoming increasingly hidden behind mutating Rorschach creatures. With the steadily surging density of sound, we too begin to lose ourselves in the dream-like frenzy of images, in the procession of subliminal spirits invoked by Reinhold Bidner. Are there “real” answers or do we only project them into our head? Are we lonesome individuals in need of protection, or multiple creatures driven by egoism? (Sebastian Höglinger)
