snow in beijing

Single-channel video, 5’51”, 2008


Music - Alexander Senko

The recipe for the simulacrum "Snow in Beijing”:
Random images of Beijing
in which there is no snow
should be shot from a taxi window at the camera
that creates a common footage
in which we should determine the abstract
which will interpret the movement
that will mimicry under animation
which will simulate the winter in the city
that is unlike Beijing
in which there is no snow,
and random images of which
should be shot from a taxi window at the camera,
that creates a common footage ...

The result:

Beijing behind the window of the car complies with the rhythm of movement.
The landscape creates abstract images of the marvelous city, which is waiting for winter. The video footage follows the music and imitates animation.
