FOOTAGE OF A THOUGHT

Postcard for Toma and Lacramioara. Erata: MORCOV, not morcove. My brain was frozen.

Postcard for Odin. Music: John Grant.  Song: GMF.

Postcards for Daria and Marian. This two were an exception from streaming live, they are postcards “written” few hours in advance, due to technical inconveniences.

Postcard from Mars. The title of this footage series is inspired from a quote of Helgi Bragason (geologist): “There are only two places known to us that have the characteristics of Mars. The one is Mars, and the other is right here in Iceland.”

Slow breakfast inspired by slow television: the video work I am reffering to in this footage is of John Smith, The Girl Chewing Gum (1976).
