Sproget er det hus vi bor i

Jesper Fabricius, Denmark, 2002

19 min.DK/Experimental

Jesper Fabricius, painter and filmmaker, has devised a series of film experiments in which he approaches the physical material of the media with an attitude of mechanical, almost scientific inquiry. He is more interested in the celluloid than in the classical narrative, and in the magic concealed by the illusion act performed by the moving image. This also goes for »Language is the House We Live In«, which is primarily composed of a series of shots of building sites and Icelandic landscapes seen through various colour filters and added effects that manipulate time. The building sites and landscapes appear to be static, but viewed over a longer period both are constantly evolving.
