Video Installation - TIME LINES  by Philipp Geist (VIDEOGEIST/ Berlin)

Rome - Palazzo delle Esposizioni
07th / 8th September 2007 Notte Bianca

For his Video Installation TIME LINES in Rome, the Berlin-based artist Philipp Geist (born 1976) deliberately avoids the use of canvases and instead projects directly onto the concrete building façades of Plazzo delle Esposizioni. On 7th/ 8th of September, visitors can expect to see a selection of images alternating between purist, dreamlike and intangibly fragile compositions. The starting foundation for all of Philipp Geist's work is video material solely filmed and produced by himself.

Philipp Geist filmed ancient art objects, as for example statues, antique sculptures, busts, paintings, gold decoration and mosaics in Rome and Berlin, from unusual perspectives. Geist used modern digital techniques (hard- and software) to manipulate the filmed images by abstracting, recolouring and overlaying them. Elements of the art pieces are seperated from their context and arranged in new picture variants and artistic compositions. In the video installation art pieces from same and different epochs are combined. The projected moving images can be seen only on smooth surfaces in a clear and unbroken way. This fragmentary effect refers to the partial, only incompletely preserved antique art objects, and thus develops a symbiosis between the projection wall and the video art. An interaction emerges between the antique works and the contemporary, digital medium videoart on the architecture and the spectators, which both serve as projection ground.

By opting to use the three-dimensional, defined structure contours as projection surfaces instead of canvases, Geist increases the motifs abstraction while simultaneously regaining depth and diversity. In this way, Geist initiates a dialogue between the historically architecture, his artistic work and the people going in and out of the structure: The visitor himself becomes part of the projected image on the threshold between the inside and outside of the building.

The visitors make a time journey within picture worlds, which range from antiquity to the digital age.

including RIVERINE Video-Water-Installation Project by Philipp Geist



What is water? Our perceptions of this "stuff" that is so existential for us vary widely. Water is scarcely perceived, if at all, in our cultural landscape unless it has changed from its usual state. Humanity has always been fully aware that water is 'pivotal' to its existence on this planet. The ancient Egyptians had always known that the Nile was the great giver of life that made the crucial difference between curse and blessing; it was venerated as divine. Very few people today are aware that of the vast volume of water we have on this planet, only about 2% is freshwater and, therefore, fit to be drunk by man and animal.

The book addresses the question of what water is, approaching an answer from two sides: first, through science and clarification of its chemical and physical properties and the effect they have on our living space. Second, it pursues in parallel the traces left by water in art, architecture and design, in which it is perceived as a phenomenon that is represented or used creatively in diverse ways. The focus is on the 20th century to the present.

An exhilarating dialogue emerges from the juxtaposition of art, architecture, design and science. This is a creative experiment that should stimulate all those who think responsibly to have some serious thoughts about this element so vital to our existence. Water will play a crucial role in determining our future; the question is how we are to deal with this precious substance.

AIR/LUFT has already been published in the "Four Elements" series. The two companion volumes on FIRE and EARTH will appear in casual sequence.


Was ist Wasser? Unsere Wahrnehmung dieses für uns existenziellen ?Stoffes" ist sehr different. Wasser nimmt man in unserem Kulturkreis eigentlich gar nicht wahr, außer es ist gegenüber dem gewohnten Zustand anders. Von Beginn an war den Menschen dieses Planeten klar, dass Wasser der ?Dreh- und Angelpunkt" ihrer Existenz ist. Für die Ägypter war seit alters her bekannt, dass der Nil der große Lebensspender ist, der über Fluch und Segen entscheidet; er wurde als Gott verehrt. Nur wenige sind sich heute der Tatsache bewusst, dass von der ungeheuren Wassermenge, die wir auf diesem Planeten haben, nur etwa 2% Süßwasser und damit für Mensch und Tier genießbar sind.

Das Buch stellt sich die Frage, was ist Wasser, und nähert sich einer Beantwortung von zwei Seiten. Durch die naturwissenschaftliche Erklärung seiner chemisch/physikalischen Bestandteile, deren Eigenschaften sowie Wirkung auf unseren Lebensraum. Parallel folgt es den kulturhistorischen Spuren des Phänomens Wasser in Kunst, Architektur und Design, in denen Wasser auf ganz unterschiedliche Weise wahrgenommen, dargestellt oder kreativ eingesetzt wird. Mit dem Fokus auf das 20. Jahrhundert bis heute.

Im Nebeneinander von Kunst, Architektur, Design und Naturwissenschaft entsteht ein spannender Dialog über Wasser. Ein kreatives Experiment, das alle verantwortlich Denkenden anregen soll, sich ernsthaft Gedanken über das für uns so lebenswichtige Element zu machen. Wasser wird die Zukunft der Menschheit entscheidend bestimmen; die Frage wird sein, wie wir künftig damit umgehen.

In der Reihe ?Die vier Elemente" ist bereits erschienen AIR / LUFT . Die weiteren Bände über FEUER und ERDE erscheinen in loser Folge.
