In modern warfare massmurder
is just another number in the papers. The count-down for the next war
already started. A film and an installation made as protest against
the first gulf-war.
The project started during my residency at Elba project space in Nijmegen, I covered the walls with black&white photographs and handwritten numbers counting down from 10.000 to 0. Additionally scraps of newspaper taken from the economic section were included.
In the film the same elements are combined: an animation of the photgraphs, numbers scrachted into the emulsion and animated newspaper scraps.
These elements are arranged around a stop-motion animation taken around the compound of a multi-national company that produces industrial chemicals.
