Instrument

Instrument is reminiscent of found-footage shot a long time ago: six seconds of a girl moving. Moritz calls this: six seconds of innocence. He manipulated the material until only fragments of this innocence remained. To the pumping rhythm of the music the girl is simultaneously present and absent, but never really present. Moritz makes her intangible und thus creates space for ones own fantasy. (Lies Holtrop)
