Allegorical images flash up between black frames: Over this, a sound montage of scraps of conversation and noise. Following the compositional principle of Günter Brus’s “Vienna walk” documented on 8-mm film, Ghost Copy synthesizes amateur analogue film material with digital sound fragments. In this way, a space is created in which the zeitgeist (ghost of time) and images of humanity make ghostly appearances.
