Postproduction Studios, Frankfurt 2012
The special effects and color grading studios reflect the world of movie making by creating a visually `gravity free´ space related to science fiction setups. Robert wiene´s `the cabinet of dr. caligari´ and the overlap of filmstrips in lis rhodes's videoinstallation `light music´ was our inspiration to start interweaving the space with huge transparent filmstrips to override our common perception of 3-dimensionality. The usual horizontal lines of walls and furnitures are rotated and twisted along the axis of the corridors to create a transparent multifunctional wall, that generates the counter, seatings and storage place and transforms the corridors into an autonomous, collective space illuminated by daylight. The developed formal and functional repertoire accumulates into the central object-space, the main color grading studio, extendable to a temporary cinema.
