In this film which is supported by The Center for Land Use Interpretation
and Sonic Acts, Lukas Marxt explores once more, what are the impacts of anthropogenic inhabitation, deploying a tactical usage of minimalist anticlimactic aesthetics and scrutinized framing of military ruins.
Resituating our perception of nuclear atomization, Marxt´s film navigates through shifting timescales, abducting the viewer to a dehumanized timeless dimension which is deranging and uncertain, just as the full scope of the nuclear isotope decay. (Margarida Mendes)
