Screened at Oberhausen Short Film Festival, Germany and at Loop in Barcelona, Spain and at Cinemateket, Stockholm and at Kino Arsenal in Berlin in a program made by Anna Linder, Filmform. Pipeline has been exhibited in Halifax and Montreal, Canada.
Pipeline, a video piece that brings the viewer on an uncharted journey through a pneumatic pipeline system. This pneumatic pipeline system runs by more than ten kilometers through the Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm. My basic interest was to be able to see the unseen, the speed and way of the transports in such an ancient technical system. To view the idea of moving.
A capsule was modified to transport the video camera in order to capture the movement and sound of the capsule, as it navigates through the system. The sound recorded in the video is the sound of movement, sonically inhaling and exhaling in a sequence of frozen pauses and explosive movements. Pipeline is a field recording by a video camera that hover through a closed infrastructure. Pipeline is a remix of the video material from commissioned work Krafters påverkan / Energy effect.
Thanks to Micke Höglund that modified the capsule and found the right camera. Hanter Ingenjörsteknik for great help blowing the capsule through the pipes. The AKTÅ-group at Stockholms Läns Landstings kulturförvaltning for the invitation. CRAC, creative room for art and computing in Stockholm, where I edited.
