“As a body everyone is single, as a soul never” – Hermann Hesse
THE CHILDREN OF THE ATOMIC AGE
2012, 3-screen video Installation
The video is based on a 3-screen installation, showing three characters, based on interviews about the future, our generation and the spirit of the time. The interior voices portray the confusion felt when faced with the moment of a decision. It is about the point when we are lost, but where we are able to be and where we start to exist. We are carrying the alter-egos inside us as well as the principles of struggle, recreation and disappearance. It explores the never-ending search for ones own identity, a journey through the interiors of the mind and adresses our constant hunt for perfection. Our desire to make the right decisions. A problem everyone is faced with, but with the possibilities of our time it is a never-ending circle.
Why deciding for good or evil if emptiness might be enough?
A dreamer, lost in his visions, in his own world. He is enjoying the present and believes that everything has a reason.
An idealist, distant and independent. Knowing the power of the inner self.He seeks for the paradise made by mankind.
A realist, struggling with his own dogmas and his inner monster to stay alive. He tries to reconstruct his own nature.
