Erdkörper (suns of temper) is a hybrid of film and photography, and an intense exploration of the notion of time. In a confrontation of contradictory time concepts it brings forth a ‘depth of movement’. Material is the tension between two modes of ‘passing time’: the depth of time and the glimpse of a moment, the impossible grasp-ability of time. In this tension Erdkörper (suns of temper) evolves between the nervous paralysis of human beings frozen in a snapshot of an alpine scenery and the attempted enlivening of the moment.
Inspiriert von einem Musikstück, ist Erdkörper (suns of temper) ein genialer, meditativer
Hybrid aus Film und Fotografie. Pointeker versetzt eine zunächst starre alpine Szenerie mit
zwei Statistinnen allmählich in Bewegung und wirft dadurch mit ebenso einfachen wie
effektiven Mitteln Fragen nach dem Wesen der Zeit und des (Film-)Bildes auf. Diagonale 2012
