Mondhaut (Moon Skin)
DVD-video, sound; 8:20 min.
Poem by O. Schmidt
A poem letter from of a very near and very far away friend is written into the skin - the eye of the videocamera reads it aloud past a trail of fluids, creams and powder. The original intention of the text speaks of longing, but in a platonic and playful manner. I didn’t read it that way.
The translation of the German-language poem can be read as follows:
Covering the smiling moon tonight, a ball of wad, white and fluffy ...
and this is my little cloud on which I am working -
I hear you whispering quietly ...
This is my Landscape (2004/ongoing)
