24 / 09 / 2018 - Commission for the Wallpaper video platform.
'Introducing the Wallpaper* Film Platform; a springboard for the most exciting global talent working in the moving image. Each week, we will bring you a new film that describes the Wallpaper* world, through architecture, art, interiors or travel. This page will become a unique directory of imagemakers; pioneers and disruptors redefining the visual landscape right now.For our inaugural series – ‘Documenting Domesticity’ – we gave select Wallpaper* collaborators an open brief: to depict the environments in which we live.'
Artist duo Middernacht and Alexander created untitled video 1 from moments caught on journeys between Lanzarote, France and Belgium. There are moments in travel that are ‘repetitive, boring and mundane’, the duo say. In these moments, ‘people tend to change, and get besides themselves, feel superior and perhaps stop being “domestic”, even in the most beautiful and exclusive places.’ Through bumpy car rides and crashing waves, the ‘mundane’ snapshot is elevated into something visually exciting.
