"Abstraktion 1" shows the momentary state of an ongoing experiment with human (visual) perception conducted in 2016 at the Muthesius University in Kiel, Germany. At first the project's intention was to tackle and re-interpretate (abstract) film pioneer Walter Ruthmann's work. But soon it developed into an experiment of perceptual boarders, composition and the question of "what is nothingness?". It's recommended to watch the sequence in damp light or darkness. Additionally, a big screen will intensify the experience.
