Dan Lageryd

An apartment, taken apart into easily isolated geometrical shapes, subsequently reconstructed into a reduced, simplified version of itself. The geometrical shapes – cabinet doors, windows, radiators, door openings et cetera – are filmed separately, then joined together in accordance with architectural logic and the floor plan. Here presented as a slow pan through the rooms of the apartment. The soundtrack consists of the empty apartment, mixed with whatever noise manages to get in from outside.The spatial orientation is left slightly disjointed, the view of the trees outside stereoscopic, cats, trees and changing light conditions gives the seemingly photographic image a ghostly quality.
