Tina Willgren (SE): Cosmogenical

Runtime: 4.27

When the author moved out to the outskirts of Stockholm, Sweden, she was intrigued by the suburban spaces, where shopping-, entertainment- and religious centres exist amidst gigantic parking lots and desolate building plots. It felt as though a new world was forming here, in a coincidental and spontaneous way. She filmed the video material for Cosmogenical here, and combined it with an animated text based on cut-ups and remixes of ancient creation myths, and with spinning earth globes. The author sees the work as an attempt to connect the history and the present moment and to address the constant mental and creative processes to reinvent, re-explain and rebuild the world, according to new circumstances.
