Die Kybernetik der POIWbildkompressionen

Gunter Krüger prefers to work with film and television material, freeing hidden layers. In Die Kybernetik der POIW, several seconds of Wochenschau material showing the horseback police of the GDR are enough to study this sequence in nine minutes of rythmified film for its “cellular” components. His earlier project bildkompressionen moved in the opposite direction: 24 hours of programming of ZDF combined 1,440 images in four and one half minutes to create a camera obscura.
