Enchanted Grove

2021 / 28:30 min, colour video & electronic sound.

Living beings become outnumbered by electronic components.

In the middle of an extended electronic wasteland, Enchanted Grove imagines a vivid moving micro-world where discarded electronics dance.

Colourful capacitors looking like precious jewellery or candies pulsate with their cracks and bruises on display. A city-like complex emerges in the traces of circuit boards. Inside, slowly moving, toxic leaks surface like lichens on transistors. Floppy Disk Coils appear as flowers on a large field.

 

At night, these post-circuits expose their true nature. They are nothing more than pestilential waste, products of a time, where humans got seduced by their electronic enhancements and the radiant hardware within them.
