16mm, 1997

In the experimental short film Typokinematographikon, produced by Andreas Krein in 1997 at the Film Academy of Baden-Württemberg, sheets of paper filled with letters and words are animated. The contents of the stacked pages, which at first sight seem to resemble figure poems, are set in motion using cinematic animation techniques. The viewer gets the impression that the figures – for example, a female body consisting of letters that begins to dance – develop an independent existence [Grafik.net]
