Holzstücke / Jean-François Guiton (1982, 6:00)
The various 'wood pieces' place the acoustic qualities of the banal procedures depicted on a level with the actual images, which show - in brief excerpts - the serially repeated collapse of various wood-plank constructions which were artfully built shortly beforehand. The restrained technical manipulation - confined to edits and running-speed alterations - matches the rhythm of visuals and sound in such a way that they take on a life of their own, intensifying to represent new perceptions.
'Wood pieces' is the artist's first videtape.
