ANTHROPOLIS - Henning Maier-Jantzen

Henning Maier-Jantzen © 2003
Cooperation: Anton Stabentheiner, Helmut Kovac, Scopium (Agentur für Bildmedien/Essen)
A video installation,
transmitting into the public space
from the glass front of a museum.
You see infrared recordings of ants, filmed
on their seemingly useless everyday journey
through their self-constructed conurbation.
They become a metaphoric structure,
oscillating between organic crowd,
technically produced picture,
and urban character.
The human traffic in the public space
multiplies this impression.
Realized at the Folkwang Museum in Essen.
