[ISEA2002] Artist Statement: Geert Mul – Transfer Points

Artist Statement

Transfer Points is an extract of hours of video footage filmed by Geert Mul from 1994 to 2001 in various cities around the world. This footage was first used in the installation ‘Generating Live’ (Vleeshal, Middelburg, NL, 2000 and MU, Eindhoven, NL, 2001). The output of this installation was recorded and functioned as the source material for ‘Transfer Points’ In ‘Transfer Points’. I explore the relation between ‘structure’ and ‘content’. The installation balances and drifts between music/video/narrative and abstract structure. It’s an attempt to create a universal poetic work of images and sound, using autobiographic material.
