USINIMAGE

Usinimage

A montage of documented industrial architecture and cityscapes of Berlin 
and scenes from Ulrike Ottingers Berlin Trilogy:


Ticket of No Return

Freak Orlando
Dorian Gray in the Mirror of the Yellow Press.

Selected industrial and city settings from the three films were documented again for Usinimage and intercut with the corresponding fiction film scenes, in order to give the landscapes a new accent through artistic defamiliarization and condensation. It is an exploration of city architecture, in which the shooting location serves not just as reflective or constrastive backdrop but rather becomes itself content.
