This multi-media event of the leading American video and installation artist Bill Viola combines five large surface projections with reflecting granite slabs on the theme conditio humana. The viewer can walk around in it and himself look for his standpoint in the cyclically running image sequence of human bodies slowly moving under water and loudspeakers transmitting the corresponding noises. This volume of the series Reihe Cantz contains a sensible description by Martin Hentschel of this video-sound installation and an article by Hannelore Paflik-Huber, who surveys the most important video tapes of the last 20 years and elucidates Bill Viola's technical and artistic devices in his meditative "audio- visual time compositions. Bill Viola (*1951 in New York). 1969-1973 studied at the College of Visual and Performing Arts in Syracuse, New York. 1970 first works with super-8 film and video, 1983 teaching contract for video art at the Californian Institute of the Arts in Valencia. Participated in documenta 6 and 9 and in the Biennial, Venice, in 1986. Lives in Long Beach.
