In 2005 and 2006, at the height of a decade long collaboration, together with Bas van den Hurk I made a series of art films, which in retrospect can be called The Cycle of Alienation. The films - a critical reflection on our culture - were often described by critics as 'moving paintings': painted with time and light, akin to classical painting.
The films have an extremely slow pace. The sequence of images is not submitted to a chronology of facts, but to the logic of interior experiences. Enhanced by a specific sound composition, a feeling of tension and alienation is created that was often experienced by the viewer physically.
The Cycle of Alienation consists of six films: The Lowe Society (2005), Mas de Charrou (2006), Von Altdorf (2006), The Flu (2006, which remains unedited), V (2006), Love and Gold (2006). The films were recorded respectively in Chicago, France, Bavaria, Norway, Tokyo and Lima.
