State of Suspension

A meditation on loss, State of Suspension (2012) explores the fragility of the human condition, frozen somewhere between life and death. Shot with a high-speed camera, a human figure and water defy the laws of gravity. The film directly investigates core aspects of physical matter and time. It is set to an original score by Irish / German composer Jürgen Simpson.
