GIVE MY REGARDS TO THE ALPS
10 channel video installation

The project's issue is about how perception is influenced by global image prototypes reproduced in different medias, e.g. postcards or tv.

Usually postcards show a bright lightened sujet, the image of a place, anchored in the mind of everyone which has nothing to do with the true environment of mountain nature. Especially mountainscapes of distinction are very often reproduced. A pivotal role for this installation plays the idea what a certain mountain landscape could mean to the hiker or car driver.
The footage for this video collage has been taken at Simplon pass, Black Forest sites and Jura mountain Chasseral in western Switzerland.


The current video installation composes a landscape panorama by screenings on up to ten screens at the same time. Some of the mountainscapes are unchanged, others show a different composition of Mountains and valleys every 30 seconds. The mountainĀ“s panorama changes from late summer impressions of indian summer trees to snowy hills and white peaks.
