Footnote #03: Gold & Clouds

Muth David

According to the French poststructuralist philosopher Jean Baudrillard, everyday life unfolds in a system of signs, a "car" for example implies "driving pleasure", "progress", or "independence". The video piece “Footnote #03: Gold & Clouds” aims to reflect on the object “aircraft”: a golden plane calmly glides through a landscape of digital clouds. A view from the back, cut, a view from the front, cut, another view - sequences both comforting and slightly uncanny, accompanied by a minimal soundtrack.
