The video series Other Noises, Other Rooms
shows content removed versions of famous movies like George Romeros ‘Night of the living dead‘, Milos Forman‘s ‚One flew over the Coocko nest‘ or Ridley Scott‘s ‚Alien‘. By zooming scene by scene into the pictures, selecting just cutouts without actors, deleting all dialogues and music on the audio level, the focus of the movies changes to its background. The viewer is confronted only with the film set and its sounds. All what is left is the filming set with its noises. The cinematographic sceneries are detached by their narration and can be explored as an autonomous, new space.
To the extent in which cinematic rooms are divested of their narrative dimension, in the imagination of the viewer the reconquest of these areas takes place by projecting and re-organization. They become again the stage for individual stories and expectancy rooms of private memories. The visual „horror vacui“ of the emptied movie sequences provokes the recolonisation of areas by the individual unconsciousness.
