Interview

Your film is about?
This cut-up remix video is about the world of the weary traveller who travels in time and space. Music artist Dennis Ferrer was inspired by all the travelling he has done throughout his career and hearing the "mind your step" public message every time in Schiphol Airport. The video contains handmade stopmotion animations and personal travel footage made by video director Farah Rahman which she cut-up with personal footage of music producer Olena Skalenko and old archive footage.

How did you start with film? And do you have an educational background in art or film?
I studied audiovisual design at The Willem The Kooning art Academy in Rotterdam

Could you explain how you work, what themes or concepts you use and what is important to you?
Reccuring themes in my work are deconstructing memory’s and identity with the use of found footage and found objects.
I like digging archives, at flea markets, second hand shops or even waste containers looking for old images or objects to work with.
I’m fascinated by old family photo’s. They are frozen fragments from a different time and every image has it’s own story hidden inside.
By deconstructing the existing meaning of this image i try to create a new narrative and give the image a new meaning or association.
This can be in the form of a collage, experimental film, slide installation, live audiovisual performance.
