PLAKFILM for kids (9>12y)
PHASE 1: Walk with adhesive tape (ca. 1 hour)
PHASE 2: Divinations with magic lantern (15 min./child)
With a role of tape and a magic lantern, the children in PLAKFILM gauge the turbulence of our age. They roll out transparent tape in the streets where they grew up. When they strip the tape away, an imprint of the city comes with it: dust, sand, candy wrappers, insects, glass, bits of fluff… The strips of tape thus form an ultra-realistic diary that is brought to life using an old magic lantern. Can all these forms and images help us to predict the future?
