KONTINUUM PICTURES and MOVIES
Michael Michlmayr’s videos, or better said, the “moving pictures” from the series KONTINUUM (Escalator III, TGV5320, Passage, Marathon and Seaside) – as in his other photographic works – explore time and space, as well as the condensation of time and space. Quotidian scenes in urban space are filmed from one single position and are then assembled to “film-tableaux”. The same film sequence is multiplied and strung together. As a result of the synchronized and unsynchronized film sequences, a new stage of space-time is created.
