_grau is a award-winning experimental film by Artist Robert Seidel based in Jena, Germany. Produced in 2004 it is now available in HD on Vimeo (before it was only shown in museums and galleries in this detail and quality). Here is what it is about:“_grau is a personal reflection on memories coming up during a car accident, where past events emerge, fuse, erode and finally vanish ethereally … various real sources where distorted, filtered and fitted into a sculptural structure to create not a plain abstract, but a very private snapshot of a whole life within its last seconds …”
Though there are some impressive effects to be seen here, and one wonders how this was done, Robert comments on Vimeo:“_grau is not really about the technique although it wouldn’t be possible without it. The key is the hidden narration, so everything you see is flowing and intervening from the same basis, just offering different perspectives on the event…”.”
Abstract, organic, emotional! Love it.
