In the video loop “Groninger Tiles”, Hinrich Gross squeezes together the photos cut from the facade of the Groninger Museum (Netherlands) in quick succession. The suggestion of a movement emerges, a (quasi) similar mockery of the world of pixels, a return of our media viewing habits to the world of the simple physicist. In the soundtrack, the polyphonic signal, always the same polyphonic signal, it overlaps to create a concert of monotony and intensifies the visual overload. For self-rescue, the eye begins to search for higher movement patterns.

A parallel to the current situation is perhaps that we too are looking for new role models. Furthermore, the sound is really annoying, just like the current restrictions of our previously accustomed life.


Hinrich Gross is Born in Munich, studied architecture and fine arts in Hamburg.
