Melting fields

A single camera movement explores a disaster scenario that cannot be defined in time or space. Are the apartment facing the street and the pieces destroyed or dislocated in this unwelcoming landscape just an illusion? The title Melting Fields refers to melting ice, as well as the beginnings of memory loss and spatial and temporal orientation triggered by certain processes in the human brain. How does the environment we know change when it is only fragmentarily perceived and recalled? How can this feeling of utter loneliness and despair in a fragmented mental world be visualized?


Susanne Wiegner studied architecture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and at the Pratt Institute in New York City as a DAAD scholar. She works as a 3D-artist in Munich, Germany. For several years she has been creating 3D computer animations dealing with literature and with virtual space.
