Das Experiment

Our character is situated in a plain background, wearing a suit and going through a series of facial transformations, struggling to assume his final shape. Throughout this relentless metamorphosis, our character’s face takes on Asian, European and African characteristics. The much-discussed “clash of the civilizations” is presented here as a painful and bloody game or – as the title suggests – as an experiment. Using pictures far different from those seen in everyday news media, we are reminded that in a world where capitalism fights its way to global ideological dominance and religions intervene in politics to secure their position, in the end, it’s all about people moving. This video was produced to be played as an endless loop.
