Pfaueninsel

Music, sound design for film - Ongoing (2016-17-18)

Comissioned by artist Miklos Gaál.

Pfaueninsel (“Peacock Island”) is a video work filmed in Pfaueninsel, Berlin. The project is to follow, record and produce a video essay about the mating courtship of Pfaueninsel’s peacock population reflecting cul- tural and social separations of artificiality and nature. The artistic point of departure is to consider Pfaueninsel as a symbol of instrumentalised fabrication that appears as a borderline of biology and culture. The work employs the format of a nature documentary to explore associations about control of nature, exoticism and encountering the unknown.
