Animation, digital, sound, 1:38 min
This animation was created on the occasion of an invitation for the first edition of the digital art magazine "Splace" published by the Art University Linz.
SPLACE IN THE COLORS OF MY BEDSPREAD originates from two different sources: The word 'SPLACE' displayed in the Futura Extra Bold capitals and the sound come from my film research on Tokyo with the same name (1996). While the eleven colors used in that footage originate from cloth, designed by Barbara Brown in 1969, which I, as a youth, was allowed to choose for decorating my new room, and which I still own today. The animation which was created out of this is a condensed color, space and word structure, an abstracted city and simultaneously a miniature in motion which leads one back to the original project SPLACE in the form of the splace.name website. SPLACE IN THE COLORS OF MY BEDSPREAD, together with the references and the link, functions as a trigger for a polyvalent infinite loop.
