A Silent Minute
Camilla Bergqvist

A fantasy. A picture of paradise. An utopia. S-8 film material has been taken out of its original context and placed in a new constellation. An authentic place is shown but without any knowledge about its location. A non-place, well known as paradise, presented as it is pictured in the bible. One minute of silence. Sounds of nature are followed by one minute of blackness with produced music overlaid. Experencing the expression ‘one minutes silence’. The viewer is unconsciously keeping one minutes silence while looking at the video.
