Nun Überm Stillen Land (Through the Silent Land) | 2008

video, 9 min.

Having developed a fascination with webcams stationed in city centers and people's homes, I started to collect the images they broadcast throughout the internet. Pointing out into abandoned courtyards and empty streets many of these cameras portray a world, which is seemingly devoid of people. This video uses the footage of these cameras weaving together a maze-like web of nighttime shots. A voiceover acts as a guide for dreamlike wandering through a low-resolution, virtual no man's land.
