Christoph Oertli

1995, 15:00 minutes, B&W


This videotape is about the seduction of brief moments, as if one recognizes in passing a pop song from the radio. This moment can't be captured yet the temptation to listen further has been created. On one hand the video focuses on the formal point of view, how single images cause the recipients curiosity, what effect a series of stimulus has. On the other hand it's the content of seduction: how is it prepared and how does one use it?
The tape starts off by teasing through images and sounds. Throughout the tape one is confronted with sudden breaks. Finally it turns out to be a personal journey through emotions, desires and dreams.
