NORTH BY NORTHWEST, 2001
slide projection, model aircraft with solar energy;
variable dimensions

exhibition view: georg kargl fine arts, vienna


The image projected comes from the film North by Northwest by Alfred Hitchcock and was photographed from the screen. The propeller of the model plane is operated by electricity generated by a solar cell. When the slide projector is turned on, light falls onto the solar cell, the propeller moves, and the moving shadow of the airplane is cast onto the projection on the wall. The airplane seems to be permanently landing.
