Lundahl & Seitl create artworks as elegies to specific art forms and the architectural institutions where those forms are presented. In An Elegy to the Medium of Film they explore the future of film and the cinema.

An Elegy proposes the hypothesis that we carry so much film inside us that we need very little external stimuli to create a cinematic experience. Visitors enter a darkened room in which they experience projections that play not on the screen in front of them, but in their own consciousness. Mixing video projection with audio and choreographed touch, the visitor’s imagination is projected out into the cinema.

Lundahl & Seitl would like the visitor to become immersed in the inter-subjective experience of entering a film with all its potential leaps in time and space. By being immersed in the mechanisms of the film medium and its interface with the world they want the work to evoke questions about the visitor’s interface with the world itself; comparing consciousness and sense perception with the film camera and the light, the projector and the screen.

This project is co-produced by NXTSTP, with support of The Culture Programme of the European Union. Co-producers: Göteborg Dans & Teater Festival, Kunstenfestivaldesarts, Noorderzon Performing Arts Festival Groningen, steirischer herbst festival.
