MODUS OPERANDI / FOG&WALTZ

Single-channel video, 1:42, 2011-2013

From the series "M.O.". Modus Operandi (M.O.) is a Latin fraise used to describe a method of operating and people’s behavioral patterns. It is not always possible for an outside observer to grasp the logic of others’ behavior. Their actions assume the nature of the mysterious ambiguity that is open for any interpretation.
We see people captured by a cloud in a timeless space. Their absorption and aloofness are predetermined by the location at Kehlsteinhaus (Eagle’s Nest), former Hitler’s residence in Bavaria.
