Pfingsten / Norbert Meissner (1989, 6:30)
Walking a thematic tightrope, Norbert Meissner here puts media technology to the test. The universal event of pentecost is the moment of the highest realization: technologically, the moment of all possibilities, i.e. white noise and snow. The text spoken by a TV announcer tries to create a hierarchy, but it is constantly disturbed, subverted, and displaced by electronic image distortions and fade-ins and fade-outs of multilingual versions of the text and of signal terms in various alphabets. A work to be read with differentiation on truth, sublimity, and the media.
