# Walk in

A film of repetition that is based on a mathematical principle. There is no story. A man enters through a doorway, crosses a room, sits down at a table, fills his pipe, then lights it and starts smoking. The scene of 720 frames has been divided up into six portions of equal length, and the film begins with Part 1. The action then repeats, and Part 2 begins. The film’s parts all begin with what has already been shown, and then something new is added. The constant repetition of the images produces the impression of manic behavior.

Structural scheme for Walk In:
Tx = 120 frames = 1 part of the ground material.
T1+T2+T3+T4+T5+T6 = 720 frames = total ground material, segmented in 6 equal parts of 120 frames each.
A+B+C+D+E+F = total length of film.
A = T1, B = A+T2, C = A+B+T3, D = A+B+C+T4, E = A+B+C+D+T5, F = A+B+C+D+E+T6.
20 = 1A = T1
21 = 2 B = [T1+T2]
22 = 4 C = (T1+[T1+T2]+T3)
23 = 8 D = [T1+[T1+T2]+(T1+[T1+T2]+T3)+T4]
24 = 16 E = T1+[T1+T2]+(T1+[T1+T2]+T3)+[T1+[T1+T2]+(T1+[T1+T2]+T3)+T4]+T5
25 = 32 F = T1+[T1+T2]+(T1+[T1+T2]+T3)+[T1+[T1+T2]+(T1+[T1+T2]+ T3)+T4]+T1+[T1+T2]+ (T1+[T1+T2]+T3)+[T1+[T1+T2]+(T1+[T1+T2]+T3)+T4]+T5+T6

63 parts 120 frames each = 7.560 frames = 5´15" total length.

#### Thomas Korschil zu Walk In von Moucle Blackout

Walk In versetzt uns in das Interieur einer zu Ende gehenden Epoche (die 60er), wobei dem Film in der mit fast 20jähriger Verspätung hinzugefügten Musik selbst schon eine ironische Brechung des Zeitverhafteten innewohnt. Eine 30sekündige Heimszene wird, in sechs Teile geteilt, einem rigiden additiven Schema von Wiederholungen unterworfen, welches uns immer wieder an den Anfang der Sequenz zurückwirft. Die komplette Ausgangeinstellung bekommen wir einzig zum Abschluß des Films zu Gesicht.
