Not written in stone 2016
Is a generative video-work in which 8 musicians are interviewed by a psychoanalyst. While talking about the struggles of their creative process, the analysands are at the same time making pottery behind a pottery wheel. The difficulties of making pottery for the first time are intertwined with inability to reach a clear description of how a creative process works.
Hd Video. - "Not Written in Stone", continuous random software edit.
The generative playback software specifically written for this project is continuously generating a random montage from the selected video material.
The video duration cannot be defined. Just like a Lacanian psychoanalytic session, the duration can be short to very long. A title screen can appear randomly giving the video a sense of a plot.
