This Particular Nowhere: Some of Wigner’s Friends
A head on a screen. Like a planet it moves in the emptiness of space. It speaks. Its words appear to refer to the audience space and to our contemplation of what is happening on the screen. This is how Rita Macedo’s cinematographic experiment about the observed and observation itself begins. It ponders the concepts of the here and now and the beginnings of everything that points back to ourselves, our universes and our being. What distinguishes us from the subject matter? When does consciousness exist? What produces reality?
Rita Macedo is a Portuguese film-maker and video artist based in Berlin. Fascinated by the poetic affinity between moving images and trains of thought, Macedo’s works often move within the realms of documentary and speculative fiction and focus on meaning, memory and history. Her films have been shown at numerous international festivals. Since 2018, she has lectured on digital film and video at Braunschweig University of Art.
