Christoph Keller – Rundum Film (Germany 1996, 6:20 mins.)

Rundum Film is a loop of three film strips with a length of 23, 21 or 13 cm that simultaneously map the spatial and temporal movement of the camera during shooting. The images are displayed only for split seconds while a voice is talking about sizes of distances and time in the different layers of the projection. The idea is to suggest that practically anyone can cut a piece of the film after the screening, and take it home with themselves …
