murmur de Berlin : installation. Medias : vidéo, photo, audio.


"Zeit-Machine" is a stop-motion video of the demolition of the Palast der Republik in Berlin. Four years summarized in 1 minute 29 and 870 photos. The demolition of the building brings us back in time, before its construction, before the demolition of the Schloss Hohenzollern, even before its construction, as the casttle will be rebuilt. Time, buildings, and events are deleted. How does the city change? Are our souvenirs of gone places stronger then the reality?

For four years, I connected to the web a few time everyday, to make captures of the DHM webcam when I liked what it showed. Then I retouched each image, made a film of all the events and created its soundtrack.
