Plain-Air

2009, 3:05 min, Video

 

In the video Plain-Air (2009) Weiss captures the air planes passing through the skies of the city. Using stop motion technique, she shrunk a period of a couple of month into several minutes, emphasizing the continuous human-mechanical threatening activity, happening above. In the video Weiss attempts to set a new world order, calling these airplanes to land on her rooftop. A fantasy of controlling and neutralizing the ongoing violent activity around and calling for redemption from the isolated island like roof.
