  [NOTES. Norbert Pfaffenbichler]

Verein Medienturm
Großmarktstraße 8b, A-8020 Graz

CONCEPT: Orhan Kipcak
The installation NOTES is based on a series of concrete systems of rules, which appear as graphic animations and, on the one hand, in the shape of a wall relief. Both the visual representation (image composition) and the temporal succession (montage) of the videos follow these rules.
Topic of the work NOTES is a systematic analysis and arrangement of the square form. Purposefully distilled animation and division formulas are ordered, arranged and choreographed according to certain systems. Four video-tape recorders respectively play a specific sequence; these loops are designed as variations of the square. The animations last for 20 minutes and follow different pictorial rhythms. The four monitorsare arranged crosswise and at eye level in the middle of the exhibition space.
The video installation is added by an intervention in the show room that is based on ornament. An in-wall relief, at eye level, measures a length of ten meters and is based again on a variation of the square.
