Dish washing seems to be one of the most annoying parts of housework. In the film it is the fluttering rhythm of work. The landscape of dishes moves from right to left, through water, composing another form. – M.R.
‘I present you a form: you can fulfil it with this or that sense. for every picture you can exchange an analogous one. every sequence of a so-called functional work is a part of the open spiral of life and death, growth and dissolution. these films are cut-outs off the running thread of time of this spiral of life and death, growth and dissolution. these films are cut-outs off the running thread time of this spiral, into an unknown future, as the time of the work progresses, you never know what exactly is going to come out. even if you believe you know the way more or less. with the ‘camera-helmet’ I discovered a technical means, to keep on film the central perspective, which i take in as i work.while i, in the moment of shooting, concentrate on the working process, the film records, where i coincidentally direct my view through the camera. the themes came out of an interest in the minimal transformation processes, in which i participate. i found it an area with which i am familiar.’ (from writings by Margeret Raspe)
