In Chepu River, in Chiloé (southern Chile), is located a submerged forest as a result of geological movements. The recorded images of this natural cemetery act as an antithesis to the commercial idealization of landscape generated through digital media. This footage has been intervened to make visible the violence that image manipulation can have in the construction and supplantation of what is understood as a natural landscape, in a present where what we experience as real in everyday life is under a post-production veil that constantly modifies the codes of reality.
In the window of the moving picture experimental garage .mpeg, FILZ regularly presents video art. Located on Lützner Straße 39 in Leipzig, .mpeg operates daily from 5–11pm.
