created by michael amstad and marte eknæs
music by oscar powell
original multi-mendy film sped up 300% and reversed
my own relationship with micha and marte’s film and imagery began as a ‘let’s make a music video’ thing into, almost three years later, populating a ƒolder with a volley of different components we have produced ➜ and will continue to produce, like some kind of organic machine, cogs turning endlessly in the background. what drives this period of intense work and colourful interpolation isn’t clear to any of us, but my own feeling is that it has something to do with how micha/marte, marte/micha, perceive relationships. They really look, to the point that something you would never even notice becomes something else entirely. different doors open, not just within individual images, but across the images too — as they unfold next to one another at 25 frames per second. as a consequence what you find is two or often three sets of relationships that entangle themselves with one another, like a small pile of snakes, or a tightly wound knot of roots.
