Nuit

G. Kielawski, A. Bayer

Synopsis

In the glow of a digital night, a ghost story unfolds. Dancing mobile phones illuminate Vienna’s St. Stephen’s Cathedral to the sound track of Carl Theodor Dreyer’s “Vampyr”. While enchanted bodies circle, screen icons blend with the site’s iconography. Visual history being literally on hand, “Nuit” rolls into the depths of every day media practices.
